Old and new

BarryMG

Great album. The virtuosity of the musicians is effortless, allowing the music to shine. And shine it does, with influences from gospel, jazz, and swing. Here's a composer who's not afraid to draw you in with some foot-stompin' hallelujah rhythms, and keep you sticking around for more with his complex, melodic, and inventive take on spiritual music. Can you tell I liked it ?

Fun swing

I've been looking for new music and man this swings -- in a modern kind of way. Put a huge smile on my face.
