"The standout male jazz 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
 
Among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists, GRAMMY winner Kurt 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. 
 
In Elling's latest recording entitled The Questions, released in March of 2018, NYTimes Critic Nate Chinen noted the appropriate nature of the title, writing, "For as long as we've known Kurt Elling, he has been among our most inquisitive jazz vocalists. He's bringing that impulse front and center on his probing new album... The Questions is Elling's response to the conflict and uncertainty of our present age."
