Possessing a remarkably expressive baritone, Elling spent much of the last year touring with saxophone great Branford Marsalis, who featured him on his Marsalis Music quartet album Upward Spiral. For this concert Elling is joined by The Swingles, the five-time GRAMMY Award-winning British jazz vocal ensemble created by American-born arranger Ward Swingle. The seven-member group has been a leading force in a cappella for over four decades. Featured on Glee and Grey’s Anatomy as well as the soundtrack for the Harvey Milk biopic Milk, the Swingles infuse everything from Björk to Bach with lush jazz harmonies.
