Vineyard Music Miami LIVE CD- review & giveaway
Vineyard Music Miami LIVE
“What happens when a group of 20+ musicians and 10+ songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound? What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice? Among the 2000 people that attend the Miami Vineyard Community Church, there are over a hundred singers, instrumentalists and songwriters that make up its eclectic worship ministry. For one night, these musicians joined together in worship and invited the church to document the sound that is uniquely MIAMI VINEYARD LIVE.
This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavors, from Latino claves to gospel two-step to funk and soul to delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship, yet they all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing. From anthems of praise and proclamation to songs of intimacy and adoration, there is a common thread running deep throughout this recording and that is true worship of the Living God as an expression of His Kingdom breaking in on the streets and beaches of Miami, FL.”
Erica asked me to review this CD for her and I really enjoyed it. Growing up in the church, I am very familiar with worship music and often lead or help lead music at our church. This album was very refreshing. It contained new music as well as songs I was familiar with, but with a very different style then I am used to. It really did a great job combining upbeat Latin sounds, gospel, Caribbean style music and slow smooth jazz type sounds. This is a live album, but it is very well produced and it is very high both in terms of instrumental/vocal performance, but also in audio quality (ya, I went to school for this stuff, so sometimes I’m picky). The music is very positive, and encouraging and it’s upbeat songs keep you tapping your foot or grooving along with it.
If you enjoy worship music, but are looking for something that gives a different flavor or style, I would strongly recommend this CD!
