CD Reviews

What could be better than blooze-drenched gospel mapped onto
Jan P. Dennis | Monument, CO USA | 10/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nothing.

That's right.

Nothing.

That's what we've got here. Reminds me of one of my most profound worship experiences. Let me briefly describe it.

I'm in the Bahamas. I'm at a predominantly black, charismatically oriented worship service. My lovely daughter is with me. I've come down to witness and support the wedding of a publisher I've been working with, and to attend the Sunday service presided over by his main author, the pastor of this church, Miles Monroe.

The musical worship team consists of a sax player, a trumpeter, a keyboardist, several percussionists, an electric bass player, a killer drummer, an electric guitarist, a steel drummer, and three vocalists. They cook up such a wild, holy gumbo as to almost bring down the walls of the worship center. And they praise God so magnificently as to transport the congregation into precincts of such glorious felicity as to make it seem as if we've died and gone to heaven.

That's what's going on here, if in a little less island-oriented and more traditionally black-gospel context. But the results are the same: Mesmeric, riveting, blow-the-roof-off, lament-drenched praise music of the most beguiling and soul-satisfying sort.

Anyone even mildly attracted to this vibe will not want to pass by this glorious disc, representing a high point of southern gospel jazz.

Highest recommendation."
Amazing blend of Jazz and Gospel

"This is the freshest sound in jazz in years and one of the best. The fusion of Ramsey Lewis' driving piano with a large choir is amazingly powerful when both play off the same melody lines, but even the soft sounds at times are beautiful. I only hope he does more albums like this one."
