8-time Grammy nominated saxophonist Kenneth Whalum makes his debut onto the New York jazz scene with a distinctive voice of originality. As a composer, arranger, bandleader, and tenor saxophonist, Whalum released his To Those Who Believe album in 2010 with support from Robert Glasper, Chris “Daddy” Dave and Derrick Hodge. After a brief stay at Atlanta’s historic Morehouse College, he transferred to New York City’s prestigious The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, graduating in May 2008.
At the start of 2014 Whalum teamed up with Big K.R.I.T. on his latest single “Away“. A perfect mix between Jazz and Hip Hop with Kris Bowers on keys and Jamire Williams on drums. We’re looking forward to his upcoming Through Hell & High Water album due later this year.
