Gospel Jazz is fast gaining credibility as a musical genre to be reckoned with, and saxophonist Ron Brown's "Jazz In The Spirit" concert this past July helped to certify its musical strength. Over 1400 people filled Greater Bethany Community Church in Los Angeles as Ron Brown, Kirk Whalum and guitarist Doc Powell brought their powerful musicianship and even more moving testimony. All three performers have recorded together over the past decade, and the crowd was treated to classic duets; Brown and Whalum brought the house down and brought folks to their feet with their classic arrangement of "I Surrender All" from Ron's In The Spirit CD. Powell and Whalum also teamed up for the moving "Sunday Morning". All three performers hit the stage for their rendition of Brown's " His Love Holy Spirit & Grace", joined by vocalist Liz Neville, and a 30 piece choir. Look for Ron Brown's Jazz In The Spirit to make more joyful noise in the near future.
