Album Notes
Pianist and composer Dan Crisci has written over fifty jazz compositions, some of which may be heard on his CD Offering. He has also written and arranged for New Jersey's Triad Arts Ensemble and has been a frequent accompanist for the Triad Chamber Vocal Ensemble. His works for solo piano, clarinet and piano, and choir have been performed at such venues as Syracuse University and Princeton's famed Westminster Choir College. He is currently co minister of music, along with his wife Virginia Johnston, at the Springfield Emanuel United Methodist Church in Springfield, New Jersey.

Bill Robinson has been performing as a jazz vocalist since his teen years. Recognized as one of the Garden State's favorite exponents of the vocal art, he sang for many years at New Jersey's Summit Hotel and has also appeared at such nightspots as The Green Room and Danny's Grand Sea Palace in New York City. Over the past ten years Bill and Dan have had many opportunities to perform together, including regular appearances at the popular Shanghaii Jazz in Madison, New Jersey. In 1998, Bill and guitarist John Carlini collaborated to create a very well received holiday CD, A Christmas Gift.

Listeners familiar with these hymns will find some wonderful surprises. Many tempos have been reversed and, far from being disconcerting, the effect achieved is that of certainty. One finds oneself feeling: "This is the way it should go!" Dan's chord changes and tempos, combined with Bill's stylish delivery, serve to amplify the spirit of the texts.

The old favorite "Amazing Grace" has become an upbeat jazz tune, reflecting the joy and liberation of the gift of grace. It's difficult to imagine more comforting versions of "The Lord is My Shepherd," "Precious Lord," and "How Great Thou Art." Listening to their rendition of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," one feels an irrepressible smile forming in response to such a jubilant treatment of this classic hymn.

Very enjoyable
I actually bought the CD because a good friend of mine took the photograph used for the cover! But after listening to the music of Dan and Bill, I was moved by their artistry as well.

Excellent! I have known the vocalist since high school. Our class was quite small...only ten of us. His voice belies our age. Like Tony Bennett...he only improves over the years. He and his wife raised three daughters, all of whom are uccessful. His grandchildren are making their mark as well. As a young man he made the decision to keep his music as an avocation in order stay at home and be there for his famly. He has been active in his chuch and community all of his life and indeed did surrender all to be a successful husband and father. Not only is he an excellent artist, he is an excellent man. I have an autographed copy. He also has an excellent Christmas Album and a jazz album as well.
