Shelton Bissell is a veteran sax player who resides in Tennessee and makes his living by playing with all sorts of recording artists around the Nashville area. The album comprises of Shelton's interpretation of gospel classics such as "Standing On The Promises", "Bringing In The Sheaves" and "Shall We Gather At The River". Shelton is accompanied by country steel guitar and the Carol Lee Singers who for many years have been a stellar backing ensemble for many mainstream Nashville country artists. Having played the album a few times I have begun to really enjoy it (the saxophone not being a favoured instrument of mine). It is certainly something quite different to music I normally listen to. If you warm to the idea of sax-led country gospel may I suggest you seek this one out.

Hello Dave,

Boy am I behind the curve ... just found your review (6 months later). I really appreciate your comments and the fact you picked up on what I'm doing is definitely "different" for sax.

Thanks again,

Shelton

BTW, we've just added some videos to my website that you might be interested in checking out.
