This is one to grow into, play by play. Its urgent compassion, intrinsic soulfulness, hopeful spirit and luscious tunefulness are too rich to wear out easily... and you get plenty of that Van Morrison grit-and-growl.

Jeremy Vanderloop All Creation Sings. This collection of worship songs underperforms in most areas

It takes a foreign record company to give a slice of U.S. musical history its respect due on this essential-listening project.

Houses is a glimpse into hearts who have experienced God's glory.

I Have My Liberty as reviewed in The Phantom Tollbooth. Sonically and spiritually connecting sub-Saharan folkloric pop to the preaching and rootsier music of the Afrimerican church.
