Dedicated to you Kurt Elling sings the music of Coltrane and Hartman : in concert from Lincoln Center's American songbook series by Kurt Elling( Recording )

Grammy nominated and critically-acclaimed vocalist Kurt Elling will release Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman, his eighth overall album and second release on Concord Jazz.

The album is a stunning spectrum of music, both vocal and instrumental. "When you hear any of those great masters - like Coltrane - and realize the incredible gift from God that is given to those people, you can't overstate their importance to the jazz world, to the world in general. And we were very much aware of that fact as we put all this together," remarked Elling
