Folksinger Greg Brown has created the perfect description for most contemporary Christian music: "Praise the Lord, let's go to the mall." Ouch. (Hey, a man whose father was a minister should know!) In truth, much of the music labeled "praise" is very bland, having lost most of the connections to early gospel and jazz. Seth Walker, while more of a blues and folk musician, gets the true feel of gospel going on this one. All roots, no mall so the intermingling of blues and jazz and the spirit (via the B-3, the Dobro and Walker's very soulful voice) is allowed to shine through.
