  • Flanked by an impressive cadre of musicians and gospel vocalists, saxophonist Kirk Whalum offers an extended jazz paean to Jesus in this follow up to 1998's CHAPTER I of THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JAZZ. Recorded before a live audience in a cathedral in Los Angeles, Whalum's concert has the feel of a contemporary religious service, with applause and shouts from the audience. The numerous vocal spots ("El Todopoderoso" by Tata Vega; "Falling in Love With Jesus" by Jonathan Butler) give the impression of personal testimony.
  • The music sustains Whalum's reputation as a master of the crossover jazz sound; he streamlines the idiom into a palatable amalgam of traditional jazz, urban R&B, groove-based motifs, world rhythms, soft, lyrical passages, and down-home gospel. Electric guitars, synthesizers, and vocals ensure that pop fans won't feel alienated, while Whalum's gentle tenor lines are unassailable in their technical expertise. A performance that succeeds as both a musical and Christian event, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JAZZ CHAPTER II is solid fare for the hungry of ear and spirit.
