Kirk Whalum loves the Lord and he tells everyone who crosses his path. Just ask those in attendance at the ‘Maze featuring Frankie Beverly’ concert on July 17, at the Microsoft Theater.
Whalum performed his signature mix of jazz, gospel, and R&B to the delight of the crowd. A family affair, the audience got to hear a special treat – the velvety vocals of his younger brother, Kevin Whalum.
Considered a virtuoso by many and known for his extraordinary solo saxophone performance on Whitney Houston’s, “I Will Always Love You,” Kirk Whalum did not disappoint as he did what he always does – used his music to “describe the indescribable Savior.”
Whalum’s latest musical offering, “The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter IV,” is the fourth installment of a series of recordings where he explores the “convergence of jazz and gospel music infused with rhythm and blues.
“This album is a message of tribute, tragedy, and triumph, musically illustrating God’s radical hospitality,” Whalum said.
The recording features such popular hits as Paul McCartney & Wings,’ “Let Him In” and the Foo Fighters,’ “My Hero.”
