All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum will involve you in his great sax experiences on his latest hit album entitled For You whether you want to be involved or not.

As one of the most in-demand contemporary jazz saxophonists on the jazz scene today, the warmth, intonation, and presence of his playing benefits ten classic compositions from some of the best composers in music. This distinct concept reaps the momentum established by Whalum's previous hits, Joined at the Hip and Colors, but is immensely different from those endeavors, offering a collection of melodies rooted in the mystery of love. Recorded in-studio with live interplay from Paul Jackson, Jr. on guitar, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, Ricky Lawson on drums, and Greg Karukas and Ricky Peterson on keyboards. Whalum is passionate, sensuous, and in the pocket on Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" and will deeply affect you with his sax works on Stevie Wonder's "All I Do." For a contemporary take on some classic songs, this CD is sure to collect positive comments for some years to come.

    This album sets the bar high for modern day Jazz

    This album was the best Jazz album I heard in awhile. If you like smooth instrumental that will set the mood for any romance or relaxation zone, this is the album for you. I had one copy stole from me by a friend and I immediately went out and bought two more copies.

    Lover of Jazz

    A fantastic cd by Kirk Whalum. He really knows how to play music that brings peace to the soul and relaxes the mind. Not to mention how to make a music lover groove to his tracks.

    The Best!!

    I love this CD. I've bought it several times and given it as a gift. I play it at work and everyone asks what CD I'm playing. By far, one of my best CD purchases.
