He has somehow found a way to make a deeply personal statement out of the music of King Crimson, Joe Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and the Beatles, in addition to providing a new and vibrant understanding of Miles Davis, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock. That Elling is first and foremost a jazz singer makes the work searching and enthralling. His phrasing is cool and meditative as he ventures into areas usually reserved for instrumentalists. As a lyricist, Elling breathes new life into gems previously known only for their melodies. </span></p><p> Tue, 25 Sep 2012 16:21:58 +0000 Brenda Goldstein-Young 6460 at http://kplu.org Win tickets to see vocalist Kurt Elling at Jazz Alley
