"The Jazz Project - Session 1" - Jerry Nelson - Audio CD

Order Options >>

Jazz is one of those styles Jerry feels most naturally and it is the obvious genre in which to spread his ‘improvizational’ wings. So constantly refreshing you can never get bored. An all-religious cast of titles drawing from the styles of Dave Grusin, Ramsey Lewis, Dave Brubeck, Thelonius Monk, Andre Previn, David Benoit and other ‘monster’ jazz icons. If you like jazz, this one will probably stay in your player.

Featuring:

  • O Happy Day (a rendition that will blow your socks off)
  • Wayfarin’ Stranger
  • I Want Jesus to Walk With Me (Jerry’s signature jazz piece)
  • Let Us Break Bread Together (cool, background vocals)
  • My Father’s World (some Brubeck 5/4 polymeter)
  • Nobody Knows de Trouble I’ve Seen
  • Soon I Will Be Done Wid de Troubles of Dis World (an old spiritual; smooth jazz)
  • Wade In the Water (another old spiritual that really gets down)
  • What Child Is This? (cool, Christmas piano / guitar arrangement)
  • Fairest Lord Jesus (more cool jazz from a very old hymn)
  • Blessed Assurance (the well-known hymn with Big Band swing)
  • Air from Suite #3 (very unique treatment for cello, oboe and piano; a sensitive treatment of the J.S. Bach piece)
  • Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (a surprisingly energized arrangement of an old familiar J.S. Bach standard; we think he’d find it cool – maybe).

You'll be glad you added this to your audio CD collection.
