Release Date:03/23/2015;Notes:Kurt Elling's fifth album grabs you by the heartstrings and just won't let go. It's a ballad album from the emotional jazz singer based in Chicago. Emphasizing traditional harmony with unique inner voicing, Elling strolls with a superb horn trio and rhythm section. From a delicately soft whisper to a mighty roar, the vocalist produces dynamic changes to enhance each lyric gem. Every singer needs a clear mechanism for communicating with his audience. Kurt Elling's natural talent makes it work. His voice is both clear and flexible. Leaps in range pose no obstacle, as the singer dips and rises easily. All the while, his intuitive expression speaks to the public. The world over, folks are sure to get the message. He's supported by a stellar group. Bass and drums blend tastefully with distinction, while Laurence Hobgood leads with a sixth sense. The session provides warmth. Jeff Clayton's sultry saxophone interlude on "Orange Blossoms in Summertime" is followed by a lovely four-part harmony chorus. Elling, with superlative dexterity, supplies the wordless vocal fourth part. Bob Sheppard adds a pleasant, lyrical soprano solo to "Not While I'm Around," as well as a lush tenor interlude on "Say It." Elling's ballad album offers something for everyone and represents a logical step forward for the successfully creative young artist. Personnel: Kurt Elling- voice Clay Jenkins- trumpet Jeff Clayton- alto saxophone Bob Sheppard- tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone Laurence Hobgood- piano Marc Johnson- acoustic bass Peter Erskine- drums.
