Kurt Elling is the preeminent male jazz singer today. In a professional career spanning just over ten years, thirty-eight year old Elling has risen to international prominence as a jazz artist and singer. Each of his six albums for Blue Note records have been nominated for a GRAMMY award. His quartet has toured the world, performing to critical acclaim in Europe, Japan, Canada, Israel, and Australia, and at jazz festivals across the U.S. He has topped the Down Beat Critics and Jazz Times Readers' polls every year since 2000. He has won the Jazz Journalists' Association award for best male vocalist three times and earned the Prix Billie Holiday from the Academie du Jazz in Paris. Nightmoves is his first album for Concord Jazz and the level of artistry on it is nothing short of astonishing. We are indeed fortunate to have Kurt as a member of our artist family.
