The Gospel Truth CD by saxman Greg Vail

The first thing I noticed upon listening to The Gospel Truth was some of the best sax playing I''ve ever heard. Greg Vail is a superb technician, and he is so much more. You see, every song he does is played from the heart.

The Gospel Truth is sometimes upbeat but usually soft and lingering. All of the music seems to be dedicated to Spirit and thus dedicated to the Spirit that lives within all of us. The end result is music that is serene and peaceful; meditative yet contemporary.

Greg offers his superb talent on soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxes, as well as flute and piccolo. He is ably supported by keyboardist Rob Mullins. There are 10 selections on The Gospel Truth and each is so pleasing, you''ll listen to this album over and over again.

More, the saxophone is often regarded as the most romantic sound of all instruments. Well, Greg Vail raises the bar of excellence with this CD. That makes The Gospel Truth just about as smooth and easy, ambient and moving as can be. Greg blends contemporary jazz to offer a sound that speaks of love-love and praise of God, and all God''s people.

Greg Vail is regarded as a saxophonist without peer. He has recorded on literally hundreds of smooth jazz and Christian CDs over the last 20 years-indeed when you hear great sax on the radio or TV, it may well be Greg.

The Gospel Truth, though, is an ultimate testimony to talent. If you''ve been looking for music that is all at one glorifying, romantic, soft and ambient, run (do not walk) to get your copy of The Gospel Truth!

The Gospel Truth by Greg Vail
Author: By Dave Hughes (All About Jazz Magazine)

Saxman Greg Vail''s newest offering The Gospel Truth is, as its title suggests, rich with the influence of church music, while occasionally sporting funky soulfulness in varying degrees. The opener finds Vail''s saxes in R & B mode, framed by a gospel choir. Vail''s rich tenor recalls Gato Barbieri on the Coster/Santana tune "Europa," expressing all of the tune''s inherent soulful grandeur.

The remainder of the program is performed only by Vail on saxes and Rob Mullins on keyboards and programming. Seven of the ten tunes were composed by Rick Muchow and in Vail''s and Mullins'' hands, they come across as simple yet eloquent, reflective, contemporary Christian fare. "Healing Grace" finds Vail''s flute in a pastoral setting. This CD will appeal to fans of contemporary Christian music who want to add some light, reflective instrumental music to their collection.
Track Listing: People All Over the World; Healing Grace; Europa; Good and Worthy; Don''t Give Up; My Life (Will Worship You); Take Time; I Know the Plans; Only the Lord of Love; Fall.
Personnel: Greg Vail - tenor, soprano, alto, and baritone saxes, flute; Rob Mullins - keyboards and programming; Melvin Davis - bass (track 3); Lamont Peoples - drums (track 3); Saddleback Church Gospel Choir - vocals (sampled) (track 1).
