October 16: “Celebrating the Heroes” – Honoring the legends that paved the way for Elling’s generation, the evening will feature songs from the catalogue by past greats, from Jon Hendricks to Dexter Gordon to Joe Zawinul. The list of Elling’s heroes would be incomplete without the poets who have inspired him lyrically, so the setlist could include his settings of work by Rumi, Wallace Stevens, Franz Wright, Robert Bly and others.
