Back to program

Kurt Elling is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive voices in today's jazz. It will be a joyous moment for many now that we can finally experience him at Moldejazz.

He comes with his new project "Passion World" which includes love songs from around the world. Elling not only sings, but also tells the songs' rich background stories and takes the audience on a romantic journey that no one should miss.

The acclaimed baritone, with a voice registry of four octaves, has since he signed for the record company Blue Note in the mid-1990s had a number of success releases. All his ten albums have been nominated for Grammy, which is a record! The album "Dedicated To You" from 2009 also won this coveted award.

That Elling is a true vocal artist is also underlined by his extensive use of vocalise; impromptu singing on vowels. It is possible that the concert in Teateret Vårt at Plassen will offer an extra surprise too; Elling has namely hinted that he could imagine a Norwegian female vocal partner ...
