Elling Swings Sinatra

Grammy Award-winner and eleven-time nominee Kurt Elling joins forces with a powerful quintet to pay homage to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” in Elling Swings Sinatra. In celebration of Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, Elling lends his superb phrasing and sophisticated delivery to Sinatra’s vast repertoire.

Elling’s seductive vocals and electric stage presence echo Sinatra’s own legendary performances. He breathes new life into old favorites with his reinterpretations of popular hits such as Come Fly With Me, My Funny Valentine, The Lady is a Tramp and I’ve Got You Under My Skin.

The standout male vocalist of our time. The New York Times
