Kirk Whalum

Kirk Whalum
Friday, March 8, 2024

Memphis-born saxophonist Kirk Whalum has continually drawn inspiration from the rich musical traditions of that city, including gospel, R&B, blues, and jazz. Whalum, who has drawn comparisons to artists like John Coltrane and Grover Washington, Jr., has gained acclaim for his cross-pollinated sound, topping the contemporary jazz chart with 1998's For You and winning the Grammy for Best Gospel Song for "It's What I Do" off 2011's The Gospel According to Jazz: Chapter III. He has also recorded with icons like Luther Vandross, Al Green, and Whitney Houston (playing on her classic "I Will Always Love You" off The Bodyguard soundtrack). Along with working as a member of the smooth jazz trio BWB, he has remained connected to the R&B world, covering the songs of artists like Babyface, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, and others.
