Reviewed by John Daniels

What makes a (mostly) instrumental album 'Christian'? In this case when the tracks are written and performed by Christian session musicians coming out from the anonymity of the studio, with the exemplary motive of raising funds for Feed The Children, a US charity. There are nine Players on this album (Michael Omartian, Tom Hemby, Mark Douthit, Dann Huff, Terry McMillan, Shane Keister, Eric Darken, Chris Rodriguez and Tommy Sims) performing 10 tracks, all except the first being individual efforts, reflecting individual styles and musical ideas. All have musical credits which include the best of American CCM, as well as the secular scene. Indeed, it's some of the secular influences which flavour the album with hints of Steely Dan and George Benson. As you would expect with such a pedigree the production is first rate, but I fear this is the sort of album which will hang around on the shelves of your local Christian bookshop, more's the pity, because when you're in the right frame of mind it's worth a second look and more than a second hearing.
