Info zu The Beautiful Day (Kurt Elling Sings Christmas)

GRAMMY-Preisträger und achtmalig von der Jazz Journalists Association ausgezeichneter 'Male Singer of the Year' Kurt Elling gehört zu den weltweit führendsten Jazz-Vokalisten. Er begeistert sowohl Publikum als auch Presse mit seiner warmen Stimme und seiner technischen Perfektion. So schreibt die Washington Post über ihn: 'Seit Mitte der 90-er hat es keinen anderen Jazzsänger gegeben, der so kühn, dynamisch oder interessant gewesen wäre wie Kurt Elling'. Jetzt veröffentlicht er sein erstes Weihnachtsalbum, auf dem er mit Leichtigkeit weihnachtlichen Standards eine große Portion Swing einhaucht. 'Sing a Christmas Caro', 'Little Drummer Boy' oder 'We Three Kings' in Ellings samtenen Bariton, gekrönt mit seinen unverwechselbaren Vokalimprovisationen sind schon ein Fest an sich. Mit dabei sind u.a. Gitarrist John McClean, Keyboarder Stuart Mindeman, Saxophonist Jim Gmilloreto, Trompeter Tito Carrillo und Kendrick Scott am Schlagzeug. Swingboppende Weihnachten vom Feinsten.

Kurt Elling
GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named “Male Singer of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association eight times in that same span. Every one of Elling’s ten albums has been nominated for a GRAMMY.

Elling’s rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word and poetry.

The New York Timesdeclared, “Elling is the standout male vocalist of our time.” The Washington Post added, “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.”

Elling was the Artist-in-Residence for the Singapore and Monterey Jazz Festivals. He has also written multi-disciplinary works for The Steppenwolf Theatre and the City of Chicago. The Obama Administration’s first state dinner featured Elling in a command performance.

Elling is a renowned artist of vocalese – the writing and performing of words over recorded improvised jazz solos. The natural heir to jazz pioneers Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Jon Hendricks, Elling has set his own lyrics to the improvised solos of Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny. He often incorporates images and references from writers such as Rilke, Rumi, Neruda and Proust into his work. The late poet and Bollingen Prize winner Robert Creeley wrote, “Kurt Elling takes us into a world of sacred particulars. His words are informed by a powerful poetic spirit.” Said Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States, “In Kurt Elling’s art, the voice of jazz gives a new spiritual presence to the ancient, sweet and powerful bond between poetry and music.”

Kurt Elling has toured vigorously throughout his career, thrilling audiences throughout the world. In that time he has led his own ensemble and has collaborated with many of the world’s finest orchestras.

Passion World, Kurt Elling’s newest recording, culminates nearly five years of collecting and honing songs – and in some cases writing new lyrics – that express love, romance and heartbreak around the world. Throughout his travels, Elling has observed how deeply felt passions are shaped in countless ways by each unique culture. Those insights have guided the creation of Passion World, a tour-de-force project that is vibrant with diversity, celebrating what makes us all human. In concert Elling tells rich stories about the history and context of each of these songs to sweep you away on a grand tour of exotic places, cultures and times. Passion World is a musical magic carpet taking you on a fascinating journey through the realms of romance in a concert not to be missed.
