Kurt Wins 2007 Bistro Award
Backstage.com has awarded Kurt Elling its 2007 Bistro award as major jazz vocalist for his Birdland performances last year. The gala awards ceremony is in April.
The Back Stage Bistro Awards recognize achievement in a wide variety of categories â€” from outstanding performances to outstanding accomplishments and contributions by members of the cabaret community. New categories can be drawn up each year as they best describe the recipients, and categories may be dropped as well.
The object is not to choose “the best,” but to congratulate those who have done something special during the year.
