GRAMMY NOMINEE KIRK WHALUM JOINS MANTESTEDRECIPES.COM IN “SET THE MOOD SWEEPSTAKES”


 

Sweepstakes Winners Will Receive A JAMBOX By Jawbone Wireless Speaker And Whalum’s New CD Romance Language

(Los Angeles – June 26, 2012) –  Grammy-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum along with MantestedRecipes.com and Real Men Cook have joined forces to encourage men to bring romance to the table with their “Set The Mood Sweepstakes.”

ManTestedRecipes.com, the fastest growing social food site and Real Men Cook, a non-profit dedicated to serving families in need have teamed up with Whalum launching a sweepstakes and the chance to submit photos of romantic meals to the Man Tested Recipes Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ManTestedRecipes).

Four weekly winners will be picked at random and will receive a JAMBOX by Jawbone wireless SmartSpeaker – the smallest, best-sounding wireless speaker on

the planet.  Winners will also receive Grammy-winning saxman Kirk Whalum’s new album, Romance Language, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard contemporary Jazz Chart.

The critically acclaimed Romance Language is a re-working of the classic 1963 album by the legendary John Coltrane and song stylist Johnny Hartman. Whalum assumes the role of Coltrane while his younger brother Kevin fills the large footprints of Hartman.

In addition to the six original songs from Coltrane/Hartman, Whalum meticulously

rounds out the set with four contemporary renderings, Heather Headley’s “I Wish I Wasn’t,” Joe’s “I Wanna Know,” Eric Benet and Tamia’s “Spend My Life With You” and the standout “Almost Doesn’t Count,” originally recorded by (then teen) Brandy and performed by Whalum’s 83 year old uncle Hugh “Peanut Whalum.”

Anyone who wants to see how America’s men set the mood can visit http://Facebook.com/ManTestdRecipes and browse the sweepstakes photo album.  The deadline for entry to the sweepstakes is July 14, 2012.
