Kurt Elling sings from his new album 1619 Broadway: The Brill Building Project, named for a famous address in songwriting. And class act drummer Lewis Nash leads his fine band with Jeremy Pelt and Jimmy Greene on trumpet and tenor. “Lewis will stay right in the pocket, while doing some of the most creative stuff being played,” bassist Peter Washington told DownBeat’s Ted Panken.
