Come enjoy Jack Lane’s first time out as a producer of CD music. His imaginative and delightful arrangements, from a palate of many musical colors, will delight your ears. This album contains modern songs that are tried and true, in addition to new and lesser known songs, and one venerable old song. Lane introduces three new songs on this album, written by his daughter Gretchen Creamer. The genre of the music runs the gamut from Smooth Jazz through Latin rhythms to Messianic music, with a little Country thrown in for good measure. It may be easy listening, but it’s not background music! You’ll want to listen to this album in headphones to get in on all the excitement of these arrangements!

Here are brief descriptions of the songs you’ll be enjoying on this CD: Surging bongos take us right into the upbeat mood of this session with the opening number, “Lord I Lift Your Name on High.” Lane takes the bittersweet old favorite, “In the Garden,” and steps it up to a lively 4/4, giving the song hope and energy. The arrangement of “He Who Began a Good Work In You” suggests the 1970’s style of jazz flugelhorn legend Chuck Mangione. Robin Mark’s plaintive “O Jerusalem” becomes a juicy Smooth Jazz duet between English horn and alto sax. “The Dwelling Place of God,” a bright new piece set here in a gentle Country style, should become a standard in the religious repertoire. Things liven up with exciting Middle Eastern renditions of the much loved songs, “The Trees of the Field” and “Shabbat Shalom.” (Circle dancing, anyone?)

 

Lane brings us a lightly Latin arrangement of the encouraging song, “Here I Am.” The popular song “Ancient Words” is given the full concert orchestra treatment right from Philharmonic Hall, evoking memories of Ravel’s “Bolero.” Then along comes another lively toe-tapper with an ethnic flair, “Jehovah-Jireh.” This is followed by the quiet and contemplative song of reassurance, “Family Song.” “The Only Hope,” another new song, is a gentle Bossa Nova led by the flute with support from sax and guitar. The title of the next new song, “Fear Yahweh and Keep His Commandments,” sounds a bit serious, but the music is pure delight as a rollicking Samba. Relax on the shores of a tropical island while a native band serenades you with “To Him Who Sits on the Throne.” “The Love of Your Cross” is the hauntingly beautiful melody which ends the album, leaving the listener in a state of serene peace.
