Event Description

Bold innovation and superb craftsmanship make Kurt Elling the outstanding male vocalist in jazz today. Every one of his ten albums has been nominated for a GRAMMY award and the ceaselessly inventive singer has won every DownBeat Critics Poll for the last 13 years. The Washington Post says Elling 'has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.'

The fabled Brill Building, at its peak, served as the creative home for more than 160 tenants associated with the pop-music industry. Of these, the vast majority were composers and lyricists. From the mid-1930s through the early 1970's the architects of the "Brill Building Sound" churned out a preponderance of the popular songs that three generations of America grew up hearing and singing. 1619 Broadway - The Brill Building Project honors a locale that the London Telegraph called "the most important generator of popular songs in the Western world."
