The Guardian
The phrasing of Norwegian Wood seems to be stretching too hard to distinguish itself from the originaland Stevie Wonder‘s Golden Lady tends towards formulaic soul-jazz, but a dreamy Blue in Green is a tour de force. […]

The Gate is fresh but still swinging, pop but plenty-plenty jazz. It is, if you will, Kurt Elling Plus, which seems like a good value in any economy. […]

They come from different backgrounds, but each of the songs on The Gate describes a single experience or moodand Elling makes them all fizz with emotion. If life is fair, this is sure to be another Grammy winner. […]
