Time for Recess
Some albums should NEVER be forgotten. . .
. . . this is just one of them. . .
This album is heavy on the Smooth Jazz... I like to call it, "Mr. Mister meets Kenny G with Gloria Estefan & Janet Jackson singing on the female vocals, Al Jarreau scattin' with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis as producers." HA!!! With some GREAT engineering on here!! Listen with your headphones to catch it all.
Plus these musicians were so seasoned. I wish I knew more about them. I would love to find out what their backgrounds are in music and where they are today.
When I first heard "Hands That Made The World" on my local Christian radio station, it seemed so out of place for their playlist. The song sounded more appropiately for 94.7 The Wave in L.A. I had to buy the album. Boy, was I surprised!!!
I LOVED IT!!!
The musicians are TIGHT as all get out!!!
After doing some research, it seems like this was the only album they put out. And unfortunately, as with many good albums, this one is out of print. But I'm sure it can be found in the usual places, eBay or a preloved CD store.
Here is HANDS THAT MADE THE WORLD
This song is definitely the smooth jazzy sound with what I think is Gloria Estefan, Janis Siegel vocals.
ENJOY!!! : )
I have to add this note:
I had to blog this song. I've had this album since it came out in 1990.
How is it you can listen to a song and want to dance AND cry at the same time????
You need to listen to this song!! It's so freeing. You want to throw your hands up in the air and twirl around while the tears stream down your face. . . . well. . . that's how I see it!!
I cried back then and as I listen to it again and again today, it takes me back to something very important. . .
This song reminds me why Jesus chose me!!!
Thank you Recess, for being faithful in putting out a quality album while being diligent in encouraging and exhorting us out here!! I'm still crying happy tears!! Thank you, Lo
Oh and BTW, I do have the accompaniment track to this ; )
