With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.”

The standout male vocalist of our time
The New York Times

Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.
The Washington Post

What a sound he makes! Elling may control that four-octave rage with icy precision, but he combines perfection with a warmth and humour that makes it listenable: his albums don’t go stale. He treats lyrics with respect, revealing grace and meaning in everyday sentiments.

Arguably the greatest jazz singer of his generation
