«Upward Spiral»

Opposites combined in the best possible way – that is certainly the case with Branford Marsalis and Kurt Elling: Branford Marsalis with his spontaneous, musically provocative playing and his legendary quartets is one of the best and best-known saxophonists of our time. Kurt Elling, frequently called simply «The Voice», is famous for his technical precision. «Upward Spiral», the first joint album by Branford Marsalis and Kurt Elling, includes pieces by Nat King Cole, George Gershwin, from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Abbey Lincoln to Sting. The two artists achieve a very successful synthesis: the saxophone sounds just as melodious as the singer’s voice, which in turn imitates the instrument. Branford Marsalis, who suggested the project to the Grammy-winning Kurt Elling, was interested in integrating the voice as a fifth instrument into his ensemble and creating music of the highest calibre.
