Tom&co started life in 1994 as the praise band for Vineville Baptist - and then in 1998 moved to Vineville North, a satellite campus. This album began - as most do - as a vague idea. We were trying to play traditional hymns, but bringing them into the 20th century. On this album you've got a lot of great guitar work, some decent multikeyboard work, and some phenomenal drum and bass playing. The album was recorded at the historic Phoenix Studios, (formerly known as Capricorn). This is where the Allman Brothers recorded a lot of their hits - and where Otis Redding used to hang around and work (he was also a co-owner, I believe). TRACKS LIST: Angels: Yes, it's Christmas - in an unusual but enjoyable way. Brethren We Have Met: Realheavy on the edgy guitar, with a full kybd Background. Lots of cool panning and an unusual middle section - ear candy! JoyFul, Joyful: The tune written by Beethoven - new agey and calm. As the Deer: Still a popular chorus after all these years - bet you've never heard it this uptempo! Holy Holy: Used to be #1 in the Baptist hymnbook. Take a deep breath an reflect on the lyrics while you listen. This is My Father's Jungle: Possibly the first time this tune has been played using an African instrument shaped like a turtle. JoyfulJoyfulJoyfulJoyful: Yep, the same Beethoven tune - but in 5! This started out as a piano/handbell piece, and morphed into something for tom&co to play. Jesus Loves Me: a bit o' rock, a bit o' jazz, a lot of tom&co.
