Sunday coming down

Paying Tribute to Lalah Hathaway

As we prepare for the week ahead and here’s hoping it will be a good one, I thought it would be good to wind down with the smooth silky soulful voice of Lalah Hathaway, daughter of the great Donny Hathaway. I have selected some of my favorites, among themโ€“ collaborations with Kirk Whalum and Grover Washington Junior. You are welcome to to post a link to one of your favorites if you are a fan of her music. Enjoy! It’s just gone 6 p.m. my end and Winter is fast replacing Autumn her – so Sunday coming down Y’all!

  1. This! This! This!!!!! Stop it Chevvy! Just stop it! Layla? Yass! LOL!!!!

    Right up there with Maysa in my book. I really loved her rendition of Luther’s Forever, For Always for Love. Thanks for posting this Sis!

    Have you ever heard her do that thing where she harmonizes with herself? It is the craziest thing!
    Check this out!

    1. Hey! Hey! Hey! – I’m just laughing to myself here. Just great to have such enthusiasm across my screen. And guess what? I’ve got a great stash where that came from. I agree, she’s up there with Maysa but you probably haven’t checked out my Phyllis Hyman tribute.
      I was chatting once with T.Wayne about coming up with a list list of the sexiest Male vocalists – voices not looks:-) So one of those for example is Will Downing. So I’ll be keen to hear who you’d add to the list. My taste varies from the baritones to the Blue Magic and Stylistic falsetto voices. So there’s your homework Sister. Show me what you got!
      Glad this got you rocking and I listened to the clip – great one! Found this one too for your listening pleasure!

      1. LOL!
        I feel the same way about your enthusiasm for music Chevvy! I guess I am just so tickled because when I first started I felt kinda isolated. Then I stumbled upon T. Wayne and made a major connection. Now you! Yass, I am in heaven. So let me say that I love the homework assignment that you gave and you gotta know that I agree with you on Will Downing. He is a MUST for sure. I know Will and Barry White are baritones but I am also a huge sucker for falsetto.
        Let me give this one a little more thought! I assure you that I will get back to you instructor! LOL

        1. Barry White for sure – I’ll work on mine and then let’s compare notes. We may have to split the baritones from the falsettos and I’d love T.Wayne to adjudicate as well. Oh! I must agree that it is great to find you. Don’t know about your end of the world but in mine, I don’t find many women crazy about music in this way. I guess it was always in my blood from my father and hanging out with brothers and eventually, I found a friend who knows music as T.Wayne does. He is definitely one of my soulmates – as you described Ron:-)

          1. Awww! I know what you mean about T. he’s pretty doggone special.
            To your point, most of the women I know don’t hold music like I do; meaning they only like what is current. Once a song’s time has ‘passed’ they no longer have a need for it.
            So yes, it is very nice to find you — my like minded sister ๐Ÿ™‚

          2. I’m going to have to try and do this too. Sounds like fun! Of course like you two, I’ve gotta give Will D. his props. And no list is complete without Luther. But I’m going to have to dig a little deeper on this one.

      2. Ok, I promise to leave you alone about Lalah but I also love this little ditty that she did with Marcus Miller called “All This Time.” Strangely enough, it came from the old Tim Meadow’s Movie Ladies Man,

        What do you think of this one girlfriend?

        1. Hey Gwin, if you find anything you think I would like just bring it on. This one is beautiful – it’s given me inspiration for a poem I might write – I’ll see how the muse grabs me:-)

          1. Chevvy,

            I just read the poem and it knocked me out!

            What’s funny is that I read it prior to coming back to the studio to read this response. So you can imagine that I was floored when I saw that you had written a poem called “All this time.”

            I’ll comment about the poem back over there.

            Also, the fact that you used the word muse is serendipitous because I have been thinking about that word a lot lately. You gotta smile because I opted not to use the word ‘coincidental.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

            Girl you are the bomb!

    1. Yeah, she is great and I remember the one with Grover very fondly. I had bought a new car and that was the first song I played in it and I can remember re-winding many times in that car:-)

    1. Ok I’m going to listen now. I am having such a laugh here. In the end I’ll have to leave the two of you to just bump in to each other all by yourselves ๐Ÿ™‚
