"The Donny Hathaway Live album is so special because it captureswith full concentrationthe 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 musicallyand responding incredibly musically. You can feel the emotion in the room as soon as the needle hits the record. That communicationit'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."
