I blame Ron Kenoly for this! All of a sudden record labels are discovering that a lot of us don't like our p&w to be too nicey, nicey! We want something with a bit of meat to it! And this is funky stuff from Californian guitarist and worship leader Tommy Walker. The affair is co-produced by drummer Bob Wilson, who knows a thing or three about laying down the beat from his time with Seawind (brilliant jazz funk band from the 70s - pray to find their albums in second hand shops!!) The album features the seemingly omnipresent Justo Almario on sax and flute playing some sublime solos but don't be fooled. Listen out for the equally anointed Varetty Heidelberg on alto. Walker provides the exhortations, some choppy guitar and brilliant songs. The opener "Sweet Presence Of Jesus" is sure to lift your spirit and move your feet - groovy! But it's not all blistering funk, the slower stuff like "Show Your Glory" and "It Will Be Worth It AN" are refreshing in their gentleness without ever sounding bland. If you like Mr Kenoly, Tommy Walker really will lift you up.
