As an art form Gospel Jazz is still in its infant stage, but with Kirk Whalum as one of the fathers of Gospel Jazz this is proof that it takes a village to raise a child. On his third installment of the Gospel According to Jazz Series Mr. Whalum takes some recognizable tunes and puts a biblical stamp to them. This CD features the melodic soothing voice of Lalah Hathaway, the musical talent of George Duke, and Doc Powell not to mention Mr. Whalum always makes this CD a family affair his uncle Hugh “Peanuts” Whalum and his brother Kevin Whalum also Caleb there cousin is on this CD. The CD is a unique blend of modern music and a classic musical art form we call jazz “The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter III” pushes the realm of Gospel Music and Jazz music to a level unheard of as well as further bridging the gap between spirituality and jazz music. I have to give “The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter III” 4.5 out of five steering wheels it has something for everyone.
