Renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, two-time Grammy winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists.

Over a 25-year career of touring and recording, Elling has won numerous awards and topped the DownBeat polls for 14 consecutive years while touring the world in a variety of contexts, including two performances at the White House.

Last year, Elling released his latest album SuperBlue, a collaboration with Charlie Hunter and members of Butcher Brown. The recording was named one of JAZZ.FM91’s top albums of 2021.

Ahead of his performance at the Flato Markham Theatre, Elling joined us to talk about his work with Charlie Hunter, his favourite moments on and off the stage, and more.
