RTÉ Concert Orchestra
Brian Byrne conductor
"Elling is 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
2010 'Best Jazz Vocal Album' Grammy winner.
Eight times named 'Male Singer of the Year' by the Jazz Journalists Association.
Thirteen times winner of the DownBeat Critics poll.
Kurt Elling's latest album 1619 Broadway - The Brill Building Project displays the signature innovation, unexpected rhythms and jazz sensibility that place him alongside history's jazz greats.
This will be the very first time for Irish audiences to see the most innovative jazz improviser, re-inventor, baritone, scat singer and poet of our time beneath the backdrop of a powerful orchestra.
A fitting candidate to take the RTÉ Concert Orchestra Signature Series into the summer.
