O’s Notes: At first glance we thought this was just another sax smooth jazz CD. But Tyrone’s introductory notes on track #1, “Testify” had a sharp punch along with a solid groove. Then Paula Ralph-Birkett started singing and we knew that this album warranted serious listening! Paula sings on 8 of the 12 songs and her voice is buttery smooth. Furthermore there is a spiritual message being delivered here. We think this has to be one of the best spiritual albums of the year!
