At last - music for grown-ups! The first time I heard this album I thought it was great. And it has got better with each subsequent play. The style is big-band jazz, with superb orchestral and big-band arrangements led by a wonderful vocal perfomance from Babbie Mason, who's previously recorded in both R&B and soft pop styles. The lyrics are articulate and entertaining, delivered by someone clearly wanting to glorify God. That lyrical excellence is most apparent on "Simply, I Love You", but there's a great deal of passion as well on tracks like "Black And Blue" (a powerful statement on racism) and the great old spiritual "Wade In The Water". The old standard "He Keeps Me Singing" comes over powerfully, as do the opener, "Play It Again", and "Theme On The 37th", and there's some real soulful singing on "Timeless" and "Trust His Heart".

I have never come accross her music in the shops, but when I heard it on our gospel community radio station I was without words cause her voice, her style of music was so near to my heart and I immediately fell inlove with her music.

I ENJOY listening to Timeless, an insightful album coming from Babbie Mason. This time the musical style was jazz (a unique change) and its clear that Mason has searched for the 'TIMELESS' love of God in the cd. Its hard to pick a favorite. I especially enjoy "Simply, I Love You", "You Have a Way with Words", "Black and Blue", and "Trust His Heart".
The album is sure to encourage and uplift the listener with the hope of Christ!!
