Donny Hathaway would have been 65 years old on October 1, 2010. Tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum‘s work has similarly crossed the boundaries between R&B, gospel and jazz with an emotional immediacy that is beyond compare. Kirk’s new release, Everything Is Everything: The Music of Donny Hathaway brilliantly exhibits 8-time Grammy nominee Kirk’s singular interpretive skills. Highlights include “You Had To Know,” featuring a heartfelt performance by Donny’s daughter, Lalah Hathaway, and Musiq Soulchild‘s retro take on “We’re Still Friends.”
