Kurt Elling

Kurt Elling

By Juan C. Ayllon

Grammy-nominated Jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and his quartet had just mesmerized a swollen crowd of 767 at the College of DuPage’s McAninch Art Center. In the lobby now, with his four year-old daughter coloring at a table merchandising his CDs, he signs autographs and visits with several hundred admirers.

The youngest of four, Elling grew up in Rockford and then Hyde Park, where his church musician father stoked a fire that led him, his wife and daughter to the mecca of jazz, New York, where they live, as he says, “for the moment.” And what a moment it is.
