“If there is a royal bloodline of male jazz singers,” writes Jazz Times’s esteemed vocal critic Christopher Loudon, “I’d suggest it progresses from Satchmo to Mel Tormé to Jon Hendricks to Mark Murphy to Kurt Elling.” The seven-time Grammy nominee, whose recording career began at age 27 with the 1995 release of Close Your Eyes, has topped the Down Beat critics poll and Jazz Times readers poll every year since 2000. Elling’s outstanding regular trio of bassist Rob Amster, drummer Willie Jones III, and pianist-arranger Laurence Hobgood, who are heard on his latest Grammy-nominated effort, Nightmoves, will support his astonishing vocal flights during his engagements at Yoshi’s Oakland and San Francisco.
