Style: Piano Trio

Release Date: December 01 2012

As a jazz pianist, it’s part of my tradition to reharmonize melodies and reinvent standards from the Great American Songbook. It naturally follows that this would carry over into the realm of church music. In fact, many of these arrangements began as preludes or offerings during a church service. While each hymn and spiritual on this album precedes the 20th century, it is my hope that you enjoy the contemporary sound I bring to the timeless beauty of these celebrated melodies. May this music bring you hope as you listen to this collection of 'joyful noise'.
