Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2007-05-28Kurt Elling’s album Nightmoves displays the wide vocal range of the seven-time Grammy-nominee, but also my fav., his style. The literate jazz poet tells stories through his song selection and even adds additional lyrics to some of his song interpretations. Backed by Laurence Hobgood on piano, Willie Jones III on drums and percussion, Christian McBride and Rob Amster on bass, and Bob Mintzer (Bob Mintzer Big Band) playing tenor sax, Elling pays tribute to several musical icons: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Betty Carter, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon, Keith Jarrett, Frank Sinatra and The Guess Who. – Pete
