turns his talents towards the music of the Brill Building – completely transforming a host of pop and soul classics in the process! The songs are familiar, but the music's got all the careful balance of some of Elling
's best records in recent years – definitely jazz all the way through, with sparkling arrangements that really work beautifully with Kurt
's unique vocals – in ways that push these tunes way past their roots, and show how strongly Elling
can bring new feelings out of a song – even with numbers that are much more iconic than his usual fare. Titles include "So Far Away", "Shoppin For Clothes", "A House Is Not A Home", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "On Broadway", "Come Fly With Me", and "You Send Me".
