Event Details

Roy Ortuso is proud to present the return of Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Kurt Elling.

Elling is widely praised as one of the most exciting and popular jazz performers in the world. The New York Times names him as “the standout male vocalist of our time”, the Guardian calls him “a kind of Sinatra with superpowers” and the Sydney Morning Herald describes him as possessing “a rare and remarkable virtuosity used in the cause of daring sonic adventures and intelligent, wide-ranging musical enterprises.”

Celebrated for the technical mastery and emotional depth of his rich four-octave baritone voice, Chicago-born Elling expands the possibilities for jazz vocals. He has won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and has been honoured as “Male Singer of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. He is a renowned artist of vocalese and the natural heir to jazz pioneers Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Jon Hendricks.

In this show, Kurt Elling breathes new life into old favourites. Joining him on this tour is Australia’s queen of jazz, Emma Pask, best known for her collaboration with James Morrison and her performances on The Voice

Check if your venue has this system.
