Personnel: Kurt Elling (vocals).
The Chicago jazz vocalist Kurt Elling shows his musical depth in this after-hours set, which features inspired re-workings of songs by a varied selection of artists, including Frank Sinatra, Irving Berlin, Betty Carter, and the Guess Who. In a further display of his wide-ranging artistry, Elling also performs musical settings of poems by Walt Whitman and Theodore Roethke, as well as adding his own lyrics to a version of "Body and Soul," and pairing lines by the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi with a little-known Duke Ellington composition, "I Like the Sunrise."

JazzTimes (p.91) - "[T]he sort of once-in-a-rare-moon creative explosion that happens when brains, guts and curiosity intersect."
