About

When Cécile McLorin Salvant won the Thelonious Monk Competition in 2010, making serious waves in the jazz world, none other than the master crooner Kurt Elling was on the jury. Now, a decade later, the two perform in a double-bill event at the Michigan Theater. Both Salvant and Elling received major props in the 2019 Downbeat Critics Poll, winning respectively for “Female Vocalist of the Year” and “Male Vocalist of the Year” (Salvant also took away the top “Jazz Artist of the Year” honors). Elling, who performed at UMS as featured lead vocalist in Fred Hersch’s tribute to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass in 2005 and in a “love letter” to the beloved John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman recording in 2009, brings his quartet, and Salvant appears with her own ensemble for separate sets — and perhaps a collaborative finale.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
