A couple of years back, I spoke glowingly of the first album from the Ichthus Fellowship Pimlico, 'The Heavens Are Open', brought to birth by the guiding hand of singer/songwriter/keyboardist and producer Jo Puleston. The follow up has been a little while in coming, but it's been worth the wait. Along for the ride this time are such worthies as Raul D'Oliveira, Geraldine Latty, Paul Kimber and Tim Oliver, so the overall mood is a very enjoyable fusion of pop, jazz and a dash of Celtic. Fave tracks at first listen: "Let The Morning (Psalm 43)", which lollops along with some tasty horn stabs from Mr D'Oliveira; "To The Cross I Come", with Jo providing vocals, keys and flute; and "Dreams", a dreamy (pun intended!) mix of piano, synth soundscape and strings, with Jo's understated vocal and a definite Celtic vibe. At over 55 minutes, there's plenty to enjoy, and I can definitely say that this will get plenty of airplay on UCB. Recommended.
