Prayers & Promises
Prayers and Promises brings together Gospel, blues, jazz, folk, country, classical, and pop in 10 instrumental tracks for a smooth and satisfying listening experience. From the jazz-tinged 'Great Is Thy Faithfulness' and the blues of 'Watchman's Prayer' to the quiet reflection of 'A Soldier's Homecoming' and 'Country Morning Blue' this CD is sure to be a pleasant surprise for your listening palette.
