Kurt Elling reunites with Tommy Smith and the SNJO for Apparition Bridge

Few singers in the world bring to bear the unique combination of artistic depth, intellectual breadth and soulful delivery that our friend Kurt Elling does. Combine his talents with the searching eloquence of tenor saxophone master Tommy Smith and the SNJO and you have the makings of a powerful and unique musical regrouping. Previous tours with Kurt Elling have featured “An Evening with Kurt Elling”, “Syntopicon”, “Swingin’ Sinatra”, and “Spirit of Light”. For this all-new concert series — exclusive to Scotland — the team will perform freshly-conceived arrangements and recently composed lyrics to the works of Europe’s most exciting contemporary composers; including Jan Garbarek, Anne Mette Iversen, Anna Pacéo, and the late Esbjörn Svennson. This project promises to reconnect us all through music as we span the ethereal chasms between the ancient and the future, between sorrow and joy, and between time and timelessness.

 

Composers:

Norma Winstone, Maggi Olin, Anne Mette Iversen, Kenny Wheeler, Hue & Cry, Jan Garbarek, Joe Zawinul, Michel Legrand, EST and Anne Paceo;

Arrangers:

Nikki Iles, Fabia Mantwill, Helge Sund, Gil Goldstein, Bryan Byrne, Christian Jacob, Mehmet Sanlikol, Joe Locke, Bill Dobbins, Geoffrey Keezer, and Florian Ross.
