Passion World by
Kurt Elling's most worldly album to date, as he casts his net far and wide, from Brazil to Ireland, Germany to Spain, Scotland to Cuba to Iceland. And it is indeed all about passions, the forces that shake our souls. The result is an album vibrant with diversity and variety, and at the same time a single-minded celebration of what makes us all human. In terms of its conceptual scope and its breadth of influences, this is the most ambitious project yet from the preeminent jazz male vocalist.
