Whatcha Lookin' For
Kirk Franklin & the Family
Runtime: 1 hr 23 minSince his debut, 1993's Kirk Franklin & the Family, Kirk Franklin has been one of the brightest stars in contemporary gospel music.

His second album, Kirk Franklin & the Family Christmas, became the genre's first Christmas album to make it to number one, and his 1996 album Whatcha Lookin' 4 went gold as soon as it was distributed.
The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter IV
Runtime: 2 hr 27 minAfter a six-year wait, the much anticipated The Gospel According To Jazz, Chapter IV is finally here with a benchmark for live recording, nuanced performance and deep improvisation at the most profoundly felt, thoughtfully conceived, personal level. Kirk Whalum’s insightful and revelatory narrative enriches the whole experience, with an up-close and personal look at the heart of the artist and his art. The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter IV is an invitation to pause, hear and “see” in a fresh, prescient way; it is also a tribute album that is uniquely gospel-centric. Honored are heads of state (Mandela and Obama), departed and greatly respected and loved artists (George Duke, Wayman Tisdale and John Coltrane), alongside mothers (Kirk’s, and yours if you like) and a homeless woman Whalum came to call friend (“Nannette”). In myriad ways, the gospel’s welcome is declared and displayed with eloquence and power.
