    As background: I've played traditional and contemporary services for over 30 years. This folio covers a broader palette than the "smooth jazz" promised on the cover. Though several titles fit this mold, there are a few traditional jazz settings, featuring a stripped-down acoustic rhythm section. And there's...

    a wonderfully dreamy setting of "Lamb of God" that owes more to ambient than jazz. Whatever, it's all top-notch! The collection achieves its full potential if you are fortunate enough to work with a rhythm section, or if you invest in the excellent accompaniment CD. The CD is unusual, in that most of the accompaniments are presented two ways: with full orchestration, and as a set of "stems" to enhance a basic rhythm section. Both approaches are effective, and fun to play (and listen to!). Finally, don't expect to sight-read these in performance. A few minutes spent hashing out, and even experimenting with improvisation, will reward both you and your listeners.
