Grammy winner Kurt Elling performs with the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice. It's his only concert in the country, during the 20th edition of the LOTOS Jazz Festival Bielska Jazz Zadymki. Elling, known for his technical mastery and emotional depth of a rich four-octave baritone voice, is famous for expanding the possibilities of jazz vocalism, making him one of the most popular performers of modern jazz. We see (and and listen to) him performing with his quartet and the NOSPR band members conducted by Alexander Humala. The programme includes pieces from his latest albums, modern interpretations of jazz standards and, of course, improvisations.
