Grammy® Award-Winning Recording Artist Kirk Whalum presents his highly-anticipated new docu-music concert film/DVD The Gospel According To Jazz Chapter IV, in partnership with Mack Avenue Records and Rendezvous Music. The Gospel According To Jazz Chapter IV docu-music concert film/DVD, which chronicles the album recording process and offers candid access to the artist as he reflects on his career and the music, is set for release on May 19, 2015 and distributed by Sony Red Distribution and Provident Distribution. The film features the live recording of the companion album at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Saxophonist Whalum elevates his award-winning Gospel According To Jazz series to a new level featuring the best in Gospel music, Contemporary Jazz, and Urban music and eloquently demonstrates the deep connections between Gospel and Jazz. The Gospel According To Jazz Chapter IV project is an invitation to pause, hear, and “see” in a fresh, prescient way, but above all, it is a tribute in a uniquely gospel-centric way.
The docu-music concert film/DVD features Rick Braun, Norman Brown, “Doc” Gibbs, Sheléa, John Stoddart, Gerald Veasley, Kevin Whalum, and Kenneth Whalum III. Special guests include Marcus Finnie, Braylon Lacy, Ralph T. Lofton, Kevin Turner, and Kortland Whalum.
