The outstanding maestro Elling with extraordinary palette of backing musicians performed a beautiful heartwarming and eclectic show in front of a small audience in an intimate setting at USF Verftet. After the show, mr. Kurt was kindly willing to tako pictures with us and have a word or two at the bar. Amazing concert and an unforgettable evening.

Great concert and the theme was just FABULOUS. Mr Elling is THE MAN
Excellent! Great talent by the entire group! Blue Llama is a fantastic space with perfect acoustics. Highly recommended!!!
Hubby and I were here last night for date night to see the incomparable Kurt Elling and wow what a night. We'd already had dinner and shame on us. We had a delicious morsel with cantelop, crema, toasted pumpkin seeds and just a hit of cayenne complements of the chef and it was absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable and the sound ensures you that there's no bad seat in the house. Then there's the divine voice of none other than Kurt Elling. This is the 3rd time we've seen him live and he never disappoints, nor does a song sound the same was twice. The Quintet was phenomenal and we couldn't have asked for a better set. Based on our experience last night, I foresee The Blue Llama quickly becoming one of our favorite places to wine, dine and be serenaded to our hearts content. Fantastic!
Jazz great vocalist Kurt Ellington was a featured guest artist of the Smithsonian Masterworks Jazz Orchestra. The Smithsonian Masterworks Jazz Orchestra played tunes spanning the globe: Compositions by Duke Ellington, Toshiko Akiyoshi. Kurt Ellington joined the orchestra for the last half of the 90 minute show. I have listened to Mr Elling's albums for several years (Passion World, NightMoves, The Gate, Dedicated To You,). Nothing prepared me for his dynamic, totally mesmerizing live performance. From the great opener Steppin Out (Joe Jackson), which grooved. To beautiful rendition of Duke Ellington's, I Like the Sunrise. For this Elling fan, the centerpiece was a profoundly moving version of the Count Basie classic, Lil' Darlin. He ended his set with a soul moving version of Nat King Cole's Nature Boy. All the featured guests of the Smithsonian Masterworks Jazz Orchestra joined Mr Elling for as final rousing rendition of Duke Ellington's, It Don't Mean A Thing, If It Ain't Got that Swing. Mr Elling's vocal range, effortless ability to modulate his voice from quiet to full force, is extraordinary. His personality reflects a kind of hipster cool. Great stage presence, rhythmic moving to the music. My all time favorite artist performance.

What an awesome performance! He even found a way to weave the tech problems with the mic into the event and kept it entertaining. This is my second time seeing him this year. I'm a fan for life now. I'll be on the lookout for appearances in other cities...
