Birdland Jazz Club continues its smashing series of livestreams this coming Wednesday with a rare appearance by Kurt Elling and Danilo Perez.
Renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, two-time Grammy winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. The New York Times proclaimed Elling, “the standout male vocalist of our time”.
Danilo Pérez is a Panamanian pianist whose music is a blend of Panamanian roots with elements of Latin American folk music, jazz, European impressionism, African, and other musical heritages that promote music as a multi-dimensional bridge between people. His career has included appearances with Dizzy Gillespie and Wayne Shorter.
