“Fred Farell’s Jazz Praise, is more than a spin on gospel, it’s like a new category in the genre. Farell is definitely one of the cool guys, who doesn’t have to establish himself by shrieking out hostile lyrics and using other manipulative tactics, popular with today’s contemporaries.
Instead, Jazz Praise combines Farell’s uncompromised vocalist abilities and the skills of his band (Jeff Kruh, Don Hanson, Jon Gilley and John Moriarty) to produce a sound that is hip, melodious, and clear. Rather than the typical gospel album, that serves as a conviction of the human spirit, Jazz Praise offers reassurance that deep down, you know the way.”
