My upcoming album, Makes the Heart to Sing: Jazz Hymns, is a little different than my earlier releases. It’s meant to be both an instrumental jazz trio record as well as a tool for church musicians who want to infuse new life into classic hymn tunes. How is this possible? Watch the brand new video to find out (it even includes sheet music clips)!
Until June 15, you can pre-order Makes the Heart to Sing for the special price of $8, or the recording and corresponding sheet music book for $20 (after June 15, the album will be $10; the album/book combo, $25). Pre-order HERE!
Your pre-orders directly assist me in releasing the album. The music is completely mixed and mastered (and sounds great!). Remaining expenses include artwork and publicity.
I’d also decided to only release Makes the Heart to Sing online as a digital download. However, many of you have asked if the record will be available as a physical CD. I plan to press a limited run of CDs this fall, after I cover my remaining expenses. If you wish to pre-order a physical CD, please email me for info.
