Nobody But You
Few will be surprised that Nobody But You is a blazing feast of church praises. That’s because this is an album from Rev. Norman Hutchins.Producers: James Roberson, Jason White
album release date: June 18, 2002
Recorded live in Los Angeles at the West Angeles COGIC, the singing and songwriting is rousing and stellar as The Greater Bethany Voices of Judah step in with strong choir support.
Producers James Roberson and Jason White continue to excel in capturing the essence of traditional Gospel.
There’s no other choice but to get up and move on the title track. Likewise, “I’ve Got My Mind Made Up” and “Jesus Whoop” (with DeNetria Champ joining in duet with Hutchins) make for memorably cuts. Like a master, Hutchins tutors what traditional is all about, with his grabbing vocal style and compelling testimony.
The album finds a very special praise and worship pocket with selections such as “Lord You Are The Potter” and “Jesus I Love You”, where the Reverend’s unheralded skills on the acoustic guitar are in evidence. Hutchins takes lead, with bright choir delivery and wonderful live production serving these songs well.

There’s also a number of ballads such as “Stay In The Race”. Whatever musical approach Hutchins puts his hand to, he has that knack of imparting his distinctive traditional flair without departing from the crucial elements of the style.
Throw in a rousing band under the direction of Jason White, include live horn arrangements by Donald Hayes, and it’s very clear that Hutchins and JDI Records have yet another smash album.
