To that end she includes several Christian songs. “Straight Street”, “Whatever Happens” and “I Exalt Thee” are highlights. Christian Sands (p), Luke Sellick (b) and Jimmy MacBride (d) accompany Pettay on this peaceful encounter. Mat Jodrell (t) and Joe McDonough (tb) make guest appearances on tracks 1 and 4 ushering Pettay to a fine start!
