"An exquisite, uplifting recording that will surely stir the soul. Monty and John Clayton navigate the listener on a spiritual journey to truth and happiness. A must for the collection."
You MUST get this...

"I walked into a pop music store in the late-80s and heard this playing - "Wow, that sounds like 'Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus'!" I thought. Since then I've made it a mission to buy every Monty Alexander album I've come across and I am yet to be disappointed. This guy has the most amazing chops since Oscar Peterson hit the scene (in fact, he sounds a lot like Oscar at times). This album is a tribute to the church music that Monty grew up listening to in Jamaica. The arrangements will enthrall you - check out the beautiful 'Ave Maria' (with the double bass sounding for all the world like a singing cello) and the sonorous chords of 'Holy, Holy, Holy'. Then there's an unusual, rumbling 'How Great Thou Art' to conclude the disk. Great stuff!"
