The esteemed jazz singer’s vocals are as pliable as his interests; from R&B to beat poetry, he’s applied himself to an array of music over the years. This week’s gig finds him fronting Denmark’s Klüvers Big Band, with whom he played at the North Sea Festival last summer, and they should be a nifty team, Elling’s passion bolstering their delicate charts. Icing on the cake? One special guest each night, Miguel Zenon, Ravi Coltrane, and Stefon Harris among them.
