We Gather Together - Hymns and Spirituals for Solo Jazz Piano by Bradley Sowash
From the Liner Notes:
The songs in this collection represent some of the best-loved hymns and spirituals in America. Their durability is intriguing. Generations of handing down new renditions have reduced them to their essential qualities. This essence'' offers a composer and musician plenty of room for interpretation and improvisation. Having sought to make them my own, I now invite you to do the same.
