Grammy® Award winning saxophone great, Kirk Whalum, teams up with 4x Grammy® Award nominated soul music legend, Candi Staton, on a Smooth Jazz rendition of “Love is You,” a smoldering track from Staton’s 30th album, Unstoppable. Other players on the track include drummer, Marcus Williams (Isaac Hayes, Peabo Bryson) and Marcel Williams (Anita Ward, Jimmy Bo Horn).
They all come together to create an engaging, rhythmic track for your programming consideration. After Marcus' first drum beat, Kirk’s warm sax opens the session and then Staton’s soft, velvety tone sings of the beauty of love. Marcel's steady bass keeps the spirit high. “I wrote the song in a way that people can interpret it based on their own experience with love,” says the singer of “Young Hearts Run Free” fame. “It can be about a romantic relationship, your relationship with your child or it can even take on a spiritual meaning. It’s up to the listener to decide what the song is about." This Smooth Jazz rendition will hit all major digital service providers such as iTunes, etc. as a stand-alone digital release.
