O’s Notes: This is a minimalist approach to fresh spiritual arrangements with bassist Jeff Denson and pianist Joshua White injecting passionate improvisation into several gospel favorites. “Down at the Cross” is upbeat and vibrant while Denson’s use of the bow conveys sadness on “Amazing Grace” before White tickles the ivory on the second of three versions of “I’ll Fly Away”, three examples of the warm traditional program.
