SuperBlue: Kurt Elling & Charlie Hunter

Saturday, June 8, 2024 —  8:00 pm
Jazz in The Concert Hall

“…the standout male jazz vocalist of our time.” — The New York Times

GRAMMY-winning jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and hybrid guitarist Charlie Hunter combine for a kaleidoscopic collection of new songs, surprising covers, and dynamic reinventions. Elling is without question today’s preeminent male jazz vocalist, renowned worldwide for his unparalleled virtuosity and flair for trailblazing artistic exploration. From his stunning reinvention of timeless standards to his own captivating original songcraft, the Chicago-based musician has fused his dazzling talents across a panoply of musical approaches, emblazoning each with signature imagination, insight, and emotional intelligence.

Where many male jazz vocalists at this stage in a much vaunted career have tended to stick to the tried and true, Elling seems to be growing more ambitious and experimental with the passing of time, a tendency evidenced by his stunning new LP, SuperBlue: The Iridescent Spree. The follow-up to 2021’s remarkable SuperBlue, the album once again sees Elling joining forces with producer/guitarist Charlie Hunter, multi-instrumentalist duo drummer Corey Fonville, and bassist-keyboardist DJ Harrison.
