This will be a night I won’t forget, a bevy of Jazz and soul fans are going to throng the Carnivore grounds on the third of December for the Safaricom Jazz Lounge.
I am simply energized as the main Kirk Whalum will be around the town. I am excited because of the way that, he has chosen to go by the nation after an elate execution he showed in Uganda for the eighth version of the Nile Jazz celebration in Uganda.
He is no conventional Jazz personality. I call him the gospel man on the Saxophone. I came to get acquitaited about him in 2014, via his renowned hit Album,” A Gospel as indicated by Jazz” released in 2002.At the time, Jonathan Butler was speculated to come to Kenya, eventually Butler came for the 2015 Safaricom Jazz Edition.
The Stage Acts that will rock the night
Clearly Kirk Whalum won’t come alone; well I wish there would be a selective appear. He will be imparting the stage to other astounding acts, such as, Norman Brown, multiple Grammy Award nominee Gerald Albright.
The opening act of the night will be Kenyan acts Edward Parseen and the Different Faces Band, and AfroSync, who have made their names in the Kenyan jazz scene on account of their exceptional sounds. Edward Parseen is an extraordinarily capable jazz saxophonist, vocalist who together with the Different Faces Band lights up the group with the skillful mastery of the art and craftsmanship.
Kirk Whalum will be joined in front of an audience by a similarly celebrated artist Gerald Albright, a well-known multi-instrumentalist and saxophonist..
Finishing the troupe will be Norman Brown, a splendid and gifted smooth jazz guitarist and artist. He is well known for his work with renowned performer Stevie Wonder and talented singer/songwriter Shelea Frazier among others.
The Different Faces Band are made out of bass player Etienne Mangala, Shabaan Musyoka on the drums, console player Moses Njoroge, a traditionally prepared musician, maker and inhabitant keyboardist for Coke Studio Africa, and guitarist Issack Kimetto who offer smooth, extreme, contemporary popular and African jazz music
