Grammy®-winner KURT ELLING is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists.  He has won every DownBeat Critics Poll for the last fourteen years and has been named “Male Singer of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association eight times in that same span. Every one of Elling’s ten albums has been nominated for a Grammy.

In celebration of Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, Elling lends his four-octave baritone, astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth to an homage to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” – as Elling Swings Sinatra.  His sophisticated delivery and electric stage presence echo Sinatra’s own legendary performances – but he adds his own thrilling innovation and superb craftsmanship into the music. In a must-see concert for those in search of current great singing, Elling breathes new life into the classic Sinatra repertoire with favorites such as “Come Fly With Me”, “My Funny Valentine”, “The Lady is a Tramp” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”.
