GRP to Release Vandross Tribute

GRP Records will release Forever, For Always, For Luther, a tribute to R&B legend Luther Vandross, on July 27. The tribute features an all-star cast of smooth jazz musicians like guitarist George Benson, saxophonist Kirk Whalum, guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr., saxophonist Boney James and trumpeter Rick Braun performing 10 of Vandross’ most loved songs. (A full track and personnel list follows.)

The title of the album is taken from Vandross’ 1982 best-selling release Forever, For Always, For Love. Vocalist Lalah Hathaway-daughter of R&B crooner Donny Hathaway-performs the title track on Forever, For Always, For Luther.
