One note from his saxophone and you recognize the impassioned sound of Kirk Whalum. In fact, Whalum played the most heard saxophone solo in history on the Whitney Houston recording of “I Will Always Love You”. Though his sound is always identifiable his musical styles are anything but predictable, ranging from the R&B bluster of BWB to the sublime Harman/Coltrane tribute “Romance Language”, to the spirit filled “Gospel According to Jazz” series.
On November 12, Kirk travels to Philadelphia’s newest destination for jazz, SOUTH to display his soulful diversity. He will be joined by the curator for the Unscripted Jazz Series, Gerald Veasley for an evening to remember.
Showtimes are 7PM and 9:30PM.
Tickets remain available for Marion Meadows’ performances on 11/5 and 11/6.
