Ben is, of course, an award-winning record producer and recorder of popular "sanctified jazz" albums. Even though it's not always blatantly obvious, all Ben's instrumentals are inspired by Scripture, which is indicated in the credits. Ben's got the down-low soulful side covered with two-step ballads such as the Casandra Robertson sung "911 Emergency" and the Diane Palmer sung "See You Again", and the pan flute featured mellow instrumental title track and the dreamy, reflective instrumental "Song Of Healing", whilst jazz-funkers such as "I Believe You" and "Church Skate Night", and the vibes and sax-featured "Sunday Breeze"instrumental form some of the dance floor-rockers. He also performs an impressive vocally layered acapella, "Take This!" which compares with the best exponents, such as Take 6. It's grown on me.
