Saxophone icon Kirk Whalum (Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross) teams up w/ producer Greg Manning (Keb’ Mo’, Herb Alpert, 2x GRAMMY® nominee, 10x #1 Billboard artist) for an electrifying collection of smooth jazz grooves. Whalum focuses on his songwriting, channels the spirit of his years with Luther Vandross to craft an album of all originals that are deep and soulful, with cross-genre appeal. “Bah-De-Yah!” has an instantly memorable hook, with a thrilling dose of Earth Wind and Fire funk. “Bah-De-Yah!” represents what it feels like to LOVE LIFE! Cowriting this project with the brilliant Swiss soul brother Greg Manning, especially this song, was pure JOY!
