Kurt and Special Guests at Carnegie Hall Nov. 8th

Mr. Elling’s sure-footed musicality and literary sensibility have made him one of the premier vocalists of our time. He comes with a flexible rhythm section — the pianist Laurence Hobgood, the bassist Robert Amster and the drummer Willie Jones III — along with a guest saxophonist, Bob Mintzer, and the Escher String Quartet. At 8:30 p.m., November 8, Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall, (212) 247-7800, carnegiehall.org
