Jumoké Fashola presents concert highlights from one of the great contemporary jazz vocalists, Kurt Elling. Known for his soaring baritone and minimalist style, Elling’s sound is instantly recognisable as his own. His work takes inspiration from the likes of the 13th-century poet Rumi as well as songwriters from across genres such as Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. The concert was recorded in Chicago in 2018 and features material from his latest album The Questions.
