Kurt Elling - Nature Boy - Jazz and Orchestra


1,9 M megtekintés453

    Thursday April 17th 2008, Opera House, Sydney, Australia
    Nature Boy with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
    Described by New York Times as 'the standout male jazz vocalist of our times', Kurt Elling's smooth four-octave baritone voice is matched only by his emotional range: from quietly crooned love songs to virtuosic vocal displayed. For multi-award winner and 2008 Grammy Award nominee, Elling, it's about communication. He says 'I want people to be surprised, to be moved, to laugh, to remember something important they may have forgotten, I want them to have what they need.'

      kurt elling is such a talented jazz singer and i really love his songs, he sounds even better live and knows how to put on a performance. im grateful for taehyung's recommendation because without him i wouldn't know about this incredible artist. i hope their collaboration happens soon since they both said they want it to happen, fingers crossed!

      Who´s the drummer?

    41. Jourwalis -

      Magnificent song. And OK sound. But the picture quality here is inferior. Only 240 p (the second worst)

    42. Kayla Donald

      Best drum solo I've ever heard. Hands down.

    43. Poohsnax

      this shit sucks

    45. Gerry Vanderzeypen

    47. Marcus Ward

      I like him!!!! I’m a singer and it’s starting to set in that I should already know who he is. I feel some kinda way that I don’t but I will quickly fix that! Buhleedat!!!


      Ya man I’m ric flair

    49. pgonzo98

      i normally don't dig scat but his scat is amazing...

    50. improcat1

      Why bother when you can listen to Mark Murphy?

      1. improcat1

        @pgonzo98 Nothing like the real thing.

      2. pgonzo98

        man cannot live on mark murphy alone....

      My God, the best, what a voice.!!!

    52. Serihang Limbu

      Kurt is too good...

    53. Joe Hoffman

      Really cool stuff.

    54. the chronicler

      I discovered Elling about 20 years ago, and I'm glad my enthusiasm for his sound stands as I see this clip now in 2020. I would hope others feel the same of the great Kurt Elling, still?

    55. Made Right by Yeshua-Adonai

      shoutout to the piano man for holding it down during the drum solo.😂

    57. Peter Callaway

      Kurt Elling is the apex male jazz singer/vocalese/scatmaster of this era. Drummer Kobie Watkins solo was dexterous and the epitome rhythmic finesse. He played one song on my self produced CD “PERFECT PEACE” and we used to Jam at the Velvet Lounge in Chicago 20 years ago. Bassist Rob Amster played a trio gig with me at DePaul University. Pianist Lawrence Hobgood is from Chicago too and a virtuoso of course! I have seen Kurt Elling perform with Mark Murphy, Kevin Mahogany, and the legendary Jon Hendricks! Kurt Elling used to jam with the legendary 🎷 player Von Freeman in the 80’s & 90’s on the Chicago’s South side. Again, Kurt Elling is one of the best jazz male singers of all time!,🎤🎹🎺🎻🎸🥁🎷🪕🎼

      1. Camila Carrizo

        No clue, this performance made me cry several times since I first listened him (at age 8, I can still feel those goosebumps). I cant believe this man is a human 😅

      2. Mentagasm

        Kobie Watkins cooks man.

      3. Mentagasm

        Greetings Peter, from Chicago.

    59. Leandro Seoane

      Too much! Beautiful voice, hearing ability, but an unnecessary need to DEMONSTRATE. EGO CRAP, UNFORTUNATELY!

    60. Don Moylan

      Great performance Mr. Elling! Have seen him live a number of times, always good!

    61. kip white

      His presence in concert is electrifying.

    62. Robert Haskell

      I have a longstanding gripe against classical musicians, of whom I am one - or have been, anyway. Look at the stone-cold expression on the flautist's face at 3:54. How do you hear what Kurt Elling is doing in that moment and react - or not react - like that? She looks like a zombie. God forbid she should show some enthusiasm. This typifies the mechanical slavery of so much classical music. I have played under conductors and have studied under teachers who could at best be described as anal and at worst sadistic. Music should be joyous. Is not the "Ode to Joy" one of the greatest classical hits? But looking at the classical music world, being in it, there are times when you wonder what the point of so much torture is. Somewhere in the far distance there is some kind of a reward for the discipline, but it isn't to be expected in the present. Carl Jung was chastised for having no interest in music; he didn't listen to it. But his explanation was that he was so sensitive to it that the jaded attitude of the musicans making it was intolerable to him. I agree with Carl.

    72. Edward Blancarte

      Grest voice and version , love it

    73. Colin Torres

      3:19 goosebumps every time

    74. Robert Bloom

      What I Truly love in this video is the soft touch and the incredible swing of the drummer but it is his soft touch that I appreciate most in this tasty solo.. It is all too easy to Bang the shit out of the drums If you Buddy Rich gene krupa it might be OK but a light touch on a drummer to me is a more sophisticated drummer a smarter drummer a better drummer to listen to.. I hate noise I hate banging I love music.. Take Elvin Jones for one example I would sit a few feet away from him Even he did not Bang away like a lunatic there was Subtlety piety Selflessness finesse.in his swinging sweet playing.. In being able to play like that you must be looser more loose less rigid you must have more control I beseech you fucking drummers to take a lesson from this

    92. Peter Jung

      The folks in the orchestra aren't grooving with Kurt. They look like invitees to a funeral.

      1. Bessie D.

        @Vladimir Atlagić; Or maybe they're just politely suffering through all of the ostentatious pyrotechnics because they're paid to be there and can't leave. .

      2. Vladimir Atlagić

        Well, they are just bricks in the wall... many of them not really satisfied with their position... all of them replaceable.

        I just shed tears as well. I love it! This group is tight and Elling’s voice is magic. What a gift!
