Somebody was labelled jazz as the Devil’s music. Well, that person will get a poke in the eye when listening to Kirk Whalum leading an amazing number of musicians and singers in the 2-CD set titled The Gospel According To Jazz.
Not only does Whalum get to display his extraordinary talent, he has surrounded himself with people of equal capabilities.
With titles like Ave Maria, Wait for The Sunshine, and Sometimes I feel Like a Motherless Child.
Whether you are feeling rather spiritual or not, whether you are transported by angels or a VW, this album has some great music and outstanding performances.
Seffricans can purchase the CD from Musica or Look & Listen and international readers from iTunes.
