About the Album

John Coltrane teaming up with Johnny Hartman in 1963...and Kirk Whalum's latest project featuring his brother Kevin entitled Romance Language (in spite of the many years that separate these recordings) bear many more similarities than differences. In fact the end result is exactly the same; romance at a level so intense that verbal language alone is inadequate to portray. Here s an attempt: easily two of the most romantic jazz albums of their respective eras.
