Mads Mathias On tour

The Guardian - The Guide - - Music -

The vir­tu­os­ity of US jazz singer Kurt Elling might still make his fel­low prac­ti­tion­ers shake their heads in dis­be­lief, but Elling’s tal­ents – along­side those of Nat King Cole and pop-jazz star Jamie Cul­lum – have guided yet not daz­zled the gifted young Dane Mads Mathias. Sig­nif­i­cantly, Mathias is a re­source­ful sax­o­phon­ist as well as a singer, and a blos­som­ing com­poser who re­works the clas­sic Broad­way-song tra­di­tion in his own ways. He’ll pre­view his up­com­ing al­bum on this tour, which takes in the open­ing night of Scar­bor­ough’s fine an­nual jazz week­ender. John Ford­ham
