Unlike John Tussey's 1998 album 'Free Flow', which combined instrumental versions of popular worship songs with his own compositions, all of the material on 'Serenity' were penned by the Hawaii-based keyboard virtuoso. It sets out to be "peaceful, restful, inspiring and relaxing," and tracks range from the piano-led "Living Water Flowing" and "Love Never Fails", to the soothing multi-layered synthesiser sounds of "Soft Breeze" and "In Quietness And Rest", all aiming to "bring you to another place." It certainly is very mellow and peaceful and in that sense it achieves what John set out to do. I guess it depends what you're looking for, but for me the absence of any familiar melodies as reference points did perhaps seem a bit of a drawback. Collections of instrumental arrangements of worship songs do exist in abundance though, so as a backdrop for time simply waiting on God, 'Serenity' may be just what you need.
