Kurt Elling

Jazz vocalist Kurt Elling has won great acclaim, not only for his singing, but for writing his own lyrics to a number of jazz standards. Elling continues that tradition on his newest recording, Nightmoves, (Concord Records ASIN: B000MCID64). Elling tells Host Liane Hansen, that the inspiration for his lyrics to the classic, Body and Soul, was his young daughter. (10:00)
