Nnenna Freelon and Kurt Elling

with The Laurence Hobgood Trio
One of the most beautiful voices in jazz today, Nnenna Freelon is graced with the special ability to re-create the tradition of great female jazz singers without exaggerated nostalgia. She's won the Billie Holiday award given by the Académie du Jazz de France. In addition to breathing new life into standards, she's a composer in her own right. Her recent album suggests that we Listen to an artist well worth discovering.

As for Kurt Elling, he's renewing jazz singing with a daring and original approach. In defiance of established conventions he keeps pushing back the limits of vocal improvisation, adding a form of spontaneous poetry. The most novel singer to appear since Bobby McFerrin.
