Craig Curry, in his debut release, brings his trademark creativity to this swinging collection of some of America's best loved hymns and spirituals (with Duke Ellington's "Come Sunday" thrown in for good measure!). Ten instrumental cuts highlight Curry's jazz piano, and 4 cuts include Craig's vocals, with 2 originals and the Take 6 influenced "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." The instrumental charts are available in print from Shawnee Press, Inc.
