Kurt Elling - The Gate
Enter for sheer pleasure
I've referred to this brilliant vocalist in some detail earlier in this blog. So I'll keep this short and supportive, the latter an understatement.
This is a superb album with interesting covers: King Crimson's 'Matte Kudasai', The Beatles' 'Norwegian Wood', and Stevie Wonder's 'Golden Lady' [see clip below, and check out others on YouTube to see this amazing performer live].
'Norwegian Wood' is an early favourite with its jazz timings and strong central guitar solo.
The gate has been opened onto a garden of Elling delights.
