A Vineyard album with a difference, this set is billed as an eclectic mix of Latin Caribbean, gospel, and funk worship and lives up to the description. In fact the project takes you to a vision of a land of endless sunshine and features over a hundred singers and instrumentalists recorded in February 2011. The opener "Holy Spirit Come" is a great Latin flavored track, with its multi-language delivery, engaging trumpet playing and a great choir giving it their all. Other tracks to set your feet moving are Brenton Brown's "Lord Reign In Me" and the funky "At All Times (The Lord Is My Rock)" which manages to blend a Chic-style bass groove alongside a gospel beat while "If You Say Go" features a reggae rhythm and Israel Houghton's "Your Name Is Great" is given a Caribbean twist. There are gentler tracks as well such as "You Restored Me" and "I Love Your Mercy" with a sound closer to other Vineyard releases.. Overall, this is an intoxicating and fresh worship celebration, well worth investigating.

Product Description
What happens when a group of over 20 musicians and over 10 songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Anglo and Caribbean come together to create a new tradition and sound?

This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavours, from Latino claves to gospel two-step, to funk and soul, to the delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship. They all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing.
