Kirk Whalum

Grammy Award winning singer  Kirk Whalum is embarking on his 8th Annual Gospel According To Jazz Christmas tour where he will perform his biggest hits, holiday favorites, and songs from his new album, “Humanite”

The Los Angeles December  6 concert at West Angeles Church will feature John Stoddart and Kevin Whalum, along with this year’s special guests, vocalist Maysa and guitarist Adam Hawley.

Kirk’s new album was produced by his longtime friend, producer, British jazz trumpeter and session musician, James McMillan. Over a period of three months in 2018, Kirk and James recorded the soul-drenched, emotional and highly melodic tracks in locations ranging from studios in Jakarta, Tokyo, Paris, Nairobi, Johannesburg and Hastings, to hotel rooms, office buildings and even Kirk’s living room in his hometown, Memphis, Tenn.

“Music is the language that communicates across borders. Music can break and enter into a person’s soul,” said Kirk. “The difference is that she is not there to take, she’s there to give, to leave something when she goes.”
