His penchant for powerful rock and pop reinventions serves him well: Iconic songs by Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon take on new urgency and beauty here. Timeless gems by jazz composers Jaco Pastorius and Carla Bley land just as effectively. Coproducer Branford Marsalis and members of his quartet play a key role, as does the outstanding trumpeter Marquis Hill. The Questions. Kurt Elling - The Questions 2018.

The Questions' Available March 23rd Pre-Order Album Get Songs Now Elling: The Questions. How does one grapple with existence and its juxtaposition against the present state of affairs That's the question that hangs heaviest over The Questions. While vocalist Kurt Elling didn't come into this production with a theme in mind, he discovered a through line in the act of wrestling with difficulties and dreams in this age of marked unreason and unrest. Through the remainder of the album, Elling paints with the various shades of perception, poetry, and philosophy that he knows so well. Okeh, Sony Masterworks. 23 March 2018. Kurt Elling summarizes the state of jazz singing almost every time he hits the recording studio, His latest, The Questions, is no exception. That doesn't mean that all of Elling's recordings are equally successful, but - with his exquisite instrument and his instinct for balancing traditional jazz vocal traditions with a modern approach - he is a singer who always has his finger on what matters. The Questions is a probing program that interrogates a wide swath of American songwriting, from Hoagy Carmichael to Paul Si. Kurt Elling begins his new and perhaps finest album, The Questions, with Bob Dylan's Walt Whitmanesque A Hard Rain's A-gonna Fall. It sets the stage to a series of equally thoughtful songs from the pens of Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Jaco Pastorius, Leonard Bernstein, Carla Bley, Rodgers and Hammerstein II, Johnny Mercer, Elling himself, and two keyboardists on this album, Stu Mindeman and Joey Calderazzo. Non c'è bisogno di The questions per elogiare un cantante come Kurt Elling, ma fa comunque effetto sentirlo cantare Bob Dylan, mantenendo comunque la tensione emotiva di A hard rain
