This Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 4th at 9:00pm EST, 8-Time Grammy nominated saxophonist Kirk Whalum will debut the live performance of his brand new release Everything is Everything: The Music of Donny Hathaway from the Detroit International Jazz Festival. To celebrate this release, the performance will be live streamed via Facebook and other media partners. RSVP to this event via Kirk Whalum’s Facebook Page — www.facebook.com/KirkWhalum. Lalah Hathaway will be his special guest. Whalum’s performance at this year’s Detroit Jazz Festival is a tribute to one of his principal musical influences—influential R&B artist Donny Hathaway. The eldest daughter of the legendary Mr. Hathaway (who passed away in 1979), Lalah Hathaway, will make a special guest appearance as the key vocalist during Whalum’s set. Whalum and Lalah will be backed John Stoddart on keyboards and vocals, Braylon Lacy on bass, Kevin Turner on guitar, and Marcus Finnie on drums.
This free live video stream will be provided by Whalum’s record label Rendezvous Entertainment and Vandoren, Whalum’s saxophone mouthpiece, reed, and ligature manufacturer.
