Jazz-influenced but also bordering on pop, this four-piece band have professional saxophonist Dan Foster as their point of contact. The 14 compositions on this album, interpretations of a selection of the Psalms, are from Peter James, who also leads vocals and plays keyboards. The tracks were originally recorded live at a church in Harrow and, within its genre, this is a fine album, from the arrangements, vocals and musicianship. The band will be particularly suited to performing at large festival gatherings but would have a need for guest musicians, the likes of which help make this album such a good piece of work. Guests on the album include Raul D'Oliveira on wind instruments and vocalists Charlotte Parmiter and Joanna James.
