Overview

Taken from some of Jim Cullum's "Riverwalk, Live From the Landing" radio shows, this set of hymns and religious-oriented music is performed by Cullum's jazz band in spirited and swinging fashion. The music is given Dixieland-ish and hot jazz treatments, with cornetist Cullum's band (featuring pianist John Sheridan, trombonist Mike Pittsley, and usually clarinetist Evan Christopher) in fine form. Flugelhornist Clark Terry guests on the opening "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," trumpeter Nicholas Payton is on "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," and Topsy Chapman has four vocals along the way. The music, which can easily be enjoyed by nonbelievers, is highlighted by "Deep River," "Ave Maria," "Just a Closer Walk With Thee" (a feature for Christopher), and "Down by the Riverside."
