Kirk Whalum
How Does Christmas Sound?

Kirk Whalum - How Does Christmas Sound?

On his new album, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum asks How Does Christmas Sound? On his second Holiday-themed album, Whalum doesn’t answer that question in the expected way - revisiting the most familiar carols, the ones that have already worn out their welcome most years by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. Instead, he finds a more spiritual, introspective sound for Christmas, one that acknowledges the melancholy that often accompanies the Yuletide and the faith that is so central to his own celebrations.
