A smooth soul singer who injected rhythmic complexity, harmonic sophistication, and a jazzy sensibility into his ambitious arrangements, Donny Hathaway was a bona fide superstar during the '70s. A romantic crooner capable of sanctified intensity on some of his more cathartic gospel flavored originals, Hathaway reached his commercial zenith as Roberta Flack's duet partner on popular hits like "Where Is The Love?" and "The Closer I Get To You." Unfortunately, his ascending career came to a tragic demise with his apparent suicide in 1979 at the age of 33. Hathaway's appearance at Carnegie Hall for the 1973 Newport Jazz Festival in New York caught the multi-talented soul singer-composer-arranger-keyboardist at the peak of his powers, performing material from his ambitious new release, Extensions of a Man.
