CD Reviews

Nice contemporary jazz
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Whalum gets real feeling into his playing, and from start to finish, this is a really nice album. Whalum's horn is one of the nicest I've heard. If you want authentic, improvisational jazz, try Joshua Redman or Stan Getz. This album is strictly pop, more like David Sanborn or Dave Koz, though Whalum's horn is much richer than Sanborn's, and his songs are much, much better than Koz's. Check out "Ma Foi" and "L.C.'s Back," which features Larry Carlton on guitar. Great put-the-top-down music."
Demonstrates Kirk's artistry

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Title just indicates what the future held and continues to hold for Kirk Whalum. This CD is different from prior two releases in 85&88 in that it is more pop oriented. Several friends are heard throughout Kirk's sax (mostly tenor). Bob James, Larry Carlton and Paul Jackson Jr. are all heard throughout the CD. Particularly nice tunes are LC's back featuring Mr. 335 himself, Larry Carlton, and the Jerry Peters titletrack tune The Promise. The CD can be enjoyed many times over."
