Reviewed by Trevor Kirk

As previously reported in these hallowed pages, Vertical Music distribution in the UK and Europe has passed from Integrity to Fierce!, and recalling the earlier offerings from the Vertical roster, from such as Lincoln Brewster and Kevin Prosch, perhaps their inherent grittier style of praise and worship didn't sit well with the more easy listening stuff released by Integrity down the years. Be that as it may, this live album, by one of the better lady singer/songwriter/worship leaders in the States, was recorded at the Oklahoma Baptist University in March 2001, benefits from the production touch of David Crowder and is good value at nearly 51 minutes for the 11 tracks. The material is mainly Jami's own, either solo or in collaboration, although there are two familiar songs from the Vineyard UK worship team repertoire, Brenton Brown's "Lord Reign In Me", which gets things off to a rousing start, and Michael Frye's "Jesus Be The Centre". A quality live album that should not disappoint you should you care to investigate.
