With a pair of Grammy nominations, 11 solo CDs, and over 60 albums as a sideman producer or arranger (including work with Dr. John, Michael Brecker, and Dr. Lonnie Smith), Doug Munro is one of New York's most respected jazz guitarists. For this inaugural album of instrumental spirituals, he combines seven originals with three common covers, bringing vibrant life to everything his nimble fingertips touch. The collection bounces between soothing to uplifting to all-out rousing, rivaling all the great contemporary jazz masters, often leaving listeners with a sense of stillness for prayer or contemplation.1
