During an era when the number of significant male jazz singers under the age of 60 can be counted on one hand, Kurt Elling's arrival is very welcome. Influenced by Mark Murphy, Elling combines poetry with jazz and is a chancetaking improviser who often makes up lyrics as he goes along. He discovered jazz while attending college and, although he had planned to become a professor in the philosophy of religion, he eventually became a professional singer instead. After a period of struggle Elling recorded a demo tape that was accepted by Blue Note, resulting in the impressive 1995 release Close Your Eyes. Messenger followed in 1997, and a year later he issued This Time It's Love. Elling continued to become more and more popular, not only with the critics but also within the jazz club scene while notoriously appearing at Chicago's the Green Mill and on subsequent national tours. His 2000 release, Live in Chicago captured three special shows at the Green Mill], along with the enthusiasm of the home-town crowd. A collection of out-takes from those sessions appeared as a Japanese import several months later. In 2001, Elling released his next studio album, a collection of ballads entitled.
