Described by the London Telegraph as "the most important generator of popular songs in the Western world," the Brill Building of New York City has an astounding list of famous songwriters who penned popular hits of the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. American jazz vocalist, composer and lyricist Kurt Elling brings to Calgary selections from his latest release, 1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project, recorded as a tribute to the famed hotspot of the music industry.
Even for the inventive, Grammy-winning Elling, this album is unexpected – but guaranteed to further solidify his reputation for bold innovation and superb craftsmanship. Some jazz fans may raise an eyebrow at his song choices, but Elling has always been known to push the boundaries of the genre and reminds us that artists from Louis Armstrong to Sonny Rollins and Herbie Hancock have successfully transformed one era’s pop songs into another’s jazz standards.
