Kurt Elling didn't get into jazz until he was in college, but when he fell, he fell hard-and since then he's done pretty well for himself, even winning a Grammy. Kurt's new album is The Gate, and it's full of covers of pop songs as well as some jazz standards. Kurt played a show for an audience of 'FUV members, and talked with Rita Houston. [1/13/11]
