I was speaking to a friend the other day, and we were talking about what was spinning on our CD players.
"Yeah", I said, "those new releases by Kirk, Yolanda and Dawkins & Dawkins are hot alright". But I had to say that right in the middle of that well-known trio was an artist that I had not heard of till last month.
That would be Rev. Marquis Egerton & Friends in Unity Mass Choir, out of South Carolina. This group has injected so much gospel juice and strong ministry into their album that I simply have no choice but to let it keep spinning on my system.
The album slams by starting with the cut "Jesus Is In
This Place", where choir and band pump driving energy
into the disc, with Rev. Egerton working the solo
with his sometimes James Moore-sounding vocals.
This project is one of varied styles, but unlike some
other albums, this is not a question of doing many
On the production side, there
really is nothing to fault. It's a live album, and
although there is plenty of crowd participation,
choir, band and soloist are balanced well throughout.
