The Music of Frank Sinatra, Jon Hendricks, Billy Eckstine, and Nancy Wilson

Renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. Declared “the standout male vocalist of our time” by The New York Times, Elling has garnered unprecedented accolades, including a fourteen-year run atop the DownBeat Critics Poll, a dozen GRAMMY nominations, and eight Jazz Journalists Association awards for “Male Singer of the Year.”

Elling’s most recent release, Secrets Are the Best Stories, continues the explorations begun on his Grammy-nominated The Questions, delving even deeper into life’s most challenging philosophical puzzles alongside renowned pianist Danilo Pérez, whose work embraces a unifying global vision. Whether transforming timeless standards or crafting his own enthralling originals, Elling balances elegant lyricism and technical mastery with emotional depth and keen observations into the human condition. “Since the mid-1990s,” hails the Washington Post, “[Elling] has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.”

The 2020 JazzLive Legacy Award announcement and presentation will take place at this concert. Tickets to the Kurt Elling: A Century of Heroes concert are required.
