Kurt Elling Quintet
With special guest Marquis Hill

Considered “male singer of the year” by the Jazz Journalists Association for eight years, winner of a Grammy Award, and twelve time Grammy nominee, The New York Time has said “Elling is the standout male vocalist of our time.” A consummated specialist in the art of vocalese”, which consists in writing and singing over improvised jazz instrumental solos, the beautiful baritone voice of Kurt Elling has sung its own lyrics over the historic solos of John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarren and Pat Metheny, among many others. Presenting in Spain his most recent álbum “The Questions”, with a magnificent group which includes the prestigious trumpet player Marquis Hill, Kurt Elling returns to San Javier, where he made his first performance in Spain during the 6th edition of Músicas del Alma. It is a great pleasure to receive this fantastic artist for the first time in Jazz San Javier who, along with Kevin Mahogany, is considered the greatest jazz singer of all time.
