Overview

Jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis returns to his gospel roots on With One Voice. Featuring the Sanctuary Choir of J.W. James Memorial A.M.E. Church, where Lewis' sister is Reverend, the album finds the pianist performing live with his small group alongside the traditional gospel choir. The result is a celebratory mix of gospel standards including "Oh Happy Day" and "Pass Me Not" as well as some original compositions by Lewis that mix his distinctive funky style with a gospel aesthetic. This is a joyous album that was clearly born out of spiritual inspiration.

I was looking for some modern gospel music when I e-stumbled over this.... and MAN am I glad. While those terrific singers are shaking the rafters, Ramsey Lewis gives us his heart and soul on the piano. THE best this year~~
