Wikipedia : This day (November 2, 1967), in Chicago, Illinois, is born Kurt Elling, an American jazz vocalist, composer, lyricist and vocalese performer.

Kurt Elling : Elling has recorded and/or performed with an array of artists, including Terence Blanchard, Dave Brubeck, Jon Hendricks, Charlie Hunter, Al Jarreau, Christian McBride, and The Yellowjackets. He served as the Artist-in-Residence for the Singapore Music and Monterey Jazz Festivals.

@Facebook : 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.

@last.fm : As of late 2005, Elling’s current band includes Rob Amster on bass, Laurence Hobgood on piano, and Kobe Watkins on drums. Elling has won the Down Beat and JazzTimes critics’ polls three years in a row in the Best Male Singer category. He is also Vice Chair of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the 17,000-member service organization that produces the annual Grammy Awards.
