Jesus & Jazz
The latest CD by Praise Master "C" should be listed in the "Gospel Jazz" genre. However, there is no genre listed by that name. Therefore it is listed under the "Jazz" and "Gospel" genre. But let's not forget God's message can be found in all types of music and jazz is no exception. The music on the "Jesus and Jazz" CD by Praise Master "C" is truly flavored through and through with all kinds of Jazz riffs and chords. But this is not surprising as most jazz music was developed from old time Gospel music chord structures. The opening song on the CD is really great featuring new comer Fuscia Lei and Theo Foreman. Fuscia is a great talent who graciously agreed to work with "Praise Master "C" on his second Gospel CD. Theo Foreman has worked with Claud Rivers aka Praise Master "C" on Jazz and R & B projects in the past. Their collaboration has delivered several charting songs on the Ison Australian radio and TV market . The jazz song "Darling Dear," on the "Get Up Let's Dance" CD by Claud Rivers charted at #1 on the Techno Chart in early 2010 and the vocal song by Theo "Sharing Christmas With Me" from the CD "Claud Rivers featuring Theo" charted at #3 on the Jazz Chart during the month of December of 2010. As a result, you can expect the same quality on this CD and you get it. "Jesus & Jazz" is one of those rare CDs where every song is a quality song with a good message. It also has all types of combinations for your listening pleasure. The CD contains female and male lead vocals, a duet, a rap song and instrumentals to which you may sing a long. Praise Master "C" has cleverly included the words to the two instrumentals. These songs, "When I Think About Jesus" and "God's Love Will Prevail" are excellent for use with congregations as they are simple and memorable. I am sure a lot of choir directors will also welcome the opportunity to use them with their local choirs. Did I mention there is an excellent song to which you can praise dance. Yes, "You Need Jesus/Jesus Rocks" is an up-tempo song, with lots of rhythms, that lends itself for creative interpretation. But the most appreciated point about the CD is that each and every song has a strong message. You should take the time to listen to each song at least two times and you will be sure to get the powerful messages that flow from each song. Any minister could listen to each one and develop a sermon based on the lyrics. Praise Master "C" has done a great job of writing songs that directly speak to passages or phrases in the Holy Bible or about your faith and belief in the Lord. There is no way you can listen to the strong and powerful messages in these songs and not want to hear them over and over again. Buy your copy of "Jesus & Jazz" for a wonderful listening experience about you and your need for or acceptance of God in your life.
