Album Notes
This recording is a follow up to "Deep, Deep Love," which was Thomas' first endeavor to combine jazz and hymns/spirituals. Some songs are instrumental, featuring the wonderful trumpet player George Rabbai (a soloist featured on the Tony Bennett/Lady Gaga album); and some songs are vocal, featuring the amazing singer Paul Jost (who is making a big splash in New York City and around the world). Also featured on several tracks is the cuban percussionist Arturo Stable. Back again are Thomas' bandmates, Micah Jones (bass) and Larry Marshall (drums). And for an extra treat, two tracks feature Jim Sullivan on accordion!
Thomas approaches centuries-old hymns as if they are jazz standards, finding fresh new ways of playing them. The project is unique, and in a genre of its own.
All of the music is played very elegantly and sensitively. Exciting at time, reflective at times, the whole range of emotions found in the hymns is on display, creating a very rewarding listening experience.
