Pick of the Day – December 28th: Kenneth Whalum III – To Those Who Believe

Kenneth Whalum III – To Those Who Believe

This album was recommended to me by person of utmost importance, and I’m definitely happy to discuss this album as it is one of note.  I do know Whalum, through other artists like Robert Glasper, one of my favorites and fellow rising star in the jazz scene (and co-pilot on this album.)  As a listener of jazz, new and old, I like to listen for old things in the new guys, to understand what they felt was pertinent for their own sound.  WHat I like about this album is the difficulty to find exact pieces and artists, Kenneth’s pulling from.  It’s a fresh album, free from specific constraints of holding to one to ten idols he may have grown up with.  Dope record – recommended.

Also – I apologize for the lack of posts.  Very busy recently, and some odd technical issues with the layout/theme.  Should be good to go now.
