There could be no better standard bearer for Hathaway's work than tenor saxophon'ist Kirk whalum, whose work has similarly crossed the boundaries between R&B, gospel and jazz with an emotional immediacy that is beyond compare. Everything is Everything consummates the chart-topping For You and The Babyface Songbook to create a trilogy that brilliantly exhibit Kirk's singular interpretive skills, and further advances the career of this 8-time Grammy nominee.
Highlights include "You Had To Know," featuring a headelt perfomance by Donny's daughter, Lalah, and neo-soul crooner Musiq Soulchild's retro take on "We're Still Friends." Wonderful arrangements by Gil Goldstein and John Stoddart, with contributions from contemporary jazz masters Rick Braun, Jeff Golub and Christian McBride, as well as pedal steel scorcher Robert Randolph, come together with Whalum's passionate tenor to tell the musical story of one of the most important figures in polular music.

Goes on by saying this is the best tribute album I ever listen to in my entire life non-stop. This is real music you cannot miss asides what's playing in the radio or on MTV, BET and stuff.
Greatly miss Donny a whole lot. Wish he was here today rockin' on!
Standouts include Valdez in the Country featuring guitarist Jeff Golub, a wicked take on Tryin' Times with sacred steel great Robert Randolph that brings out the honker in Whalum and wicked chops from Randolph. You Had To Know is a beautiful tune featuring Donny Hathaway's daughter Lalah that aches with tenderness.
The playing is spot on, never overplayed,if anything the playing is occasionally understated. All in all a very satisfying workout, and its great to hear someone take on these songs again. If you like smooth jazz, this is a keeper
everyday. When it's Kirk Whalem it is a bet that it's going
to be a a good one. "You Had To Know" by Lalah Hathaway my
favorite cut. Donny Hathaway was one of my all time favorite
On this CD. "Everything is Everything."
Their music just soars enough to tell the Story of Donny Hathaway
The CD will leave you wanting more beauty Jazz.
