"The Donny Hathaway Live album is so special because it captures—with full concentration—the thing that's special in live performance. That communication, that exchange of audience and artist. There's back and forth conversation, the women and the men in the audience are screaming things back to Donny and Donny's of course responding musically—and responding incredibly musically. You can feel the emotion in the room as soon as the needle hits the record. That communication—it's not just jazz, it's not just soul, it's human to human. That exchange between humanity is just beautiful to see. It happens on Donny Hathaway Live."
