I enjoyed most of this......fabulous musicians and mostly unbelievable arrangements. I probably won't listen to it over and over again, but I will listen to it more than sometimes, for sure. Gee....sounds like I like it more than I thought. I think that's the true review!
A amazing blend of jazz and hymns that creates an atmosphere of reverence and peace. Because these are familiar instrumental hymns you will search yourself humming or singing along. This compilation is a unbelievable homage to spirituals and can be enjoyed as you're meditating on scripture or just wish to calm your mind after a challenging day. I encourage you to and enjoy.
Trust me . You can be , virtually , bereft of any belief system at all , and still love and admire this gorgeous project . It is essential that you have a sense of wonder though . You can envy these two magnificent men their faith and spirituality (or not) . If you choose to aquire this amazing , deep and truly attractive collaboration , it might reward you as few others in your jazz library do . Regardless of said collection's size . This is sharing . This is empathy . This is absolutely breathtaking and brimming over with wonder . This IS for you . Even though you MAY think differently . Some things are just too universal and amazing and uplifting and weighty to be ignored or dismissed out of hand . Case in FACT .
I am lost for words,This album is simply uble bass and piano, nice and spacious. Excellent for a Sunday Morning, a relaxing drive in the vehicle or a late night session at home.I love the fact it is thing more to say, you can read all the other reviews for information, i just wanted to 5 STARS and recommend it. BUY.
I heard a short bit of this CD on the radio, and ordered the CD just afterwards. This is my second order- I am getting five copies for friends. I think this is some of the most attractive melody I have ever heard, regardless of genre. It is timeless, lovely, graceful, and profound. It shares with other amazing recordings I've heard the paradox of being technically rather easy and emotionally extraordinarily complex. You do not need to be a jazz buff to like it, or appreciate it; it is direct and powerful. If, when I die, I hear melody like this, I will know I was amazing enough on earth to go to heaven.
If there is a more excellent album for relaxing or quiet time- I don't know what it is. These songs are played simply and with heart. I have bought ten to fifteen copies of this album over the past twelve years- it's just that can place it on for reading the Bible, praying or for peaceful melody at dinnertime. It can be in the background or turned up without giving offense to those normally allergic to jazz. It's literally the spiritual ver of Kind of Blue. I've even given it to fresh parents because it's just peaceful.
I love black American spirituals. These are modernized, but not beyond recognition, and they are pleasant to listen to. Underground Railroad=good entertainment. Well, it gets the notice across, and musically it is very well done. Highly recommended.
I was looking for a LEGITIMATE rendition of songs/spirituals that were part of the Underground Railroad experience. This CD gave me the exact musical interpretation I required as I prepared a presentation for a national convention on the "Songs of the Underground Railroad." I have a Master's Degree in Church Music, but this CD provided new insight into the melody born in this painful time in American history.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were moments that I truly connected with as a young male, and other moments that I just busted out laughing wondering what I would have done in those situations. It was a book I’m glad I read and it’s definitely worth reading. Plus I LOVED the looks I got while reading it in airports haha.
Wow this book is the cutest most heartwarming book ever. To pray over a kid has to be the largest blessing you can bestow upon a child. The prayer is so sweet and thoughtful and just to pray a prayer over the life of a small one is just amazing. I loved it and created it my own. I’m reading this prayer over my amazing nieces and loving them while I read to them. This book touched my heart and I’m so blessed to be able to review it. Read and be a blessings.
Every line in this book is filled with words that I hope and pray for my own kids but have never been able to place together so articulately. It hits a truly deep and unique part of my heart. One that longs for each of my kids to know that they are loved, capable, supported and full of so much om the very first word my tears started to flow and they stayed and they worsened as the pages kept going. Looking over at my kids as I choked through each phrase I saw two in tears because their Momma was so moved and one small one who kept asking, "Do you need a kiss?" What a sweet moment in time when they took on the role of comforting ME!Needless to say, this will be a very unique book that will be brought out a lot of times for years to come. I'm quite sure I'll cry every time I read it because time is a cruel, cruel thing and I see it flying by so quickly. Each time we read it together it will keep a fresh meaning to that moment we will be currently autiful job, Matthew Paul Turner. Thank you for following the Lord's leading and allowing Him to pen this attractive story through you. It speaks volumes to a lot of parents and on behalf of all of us, thank you for putting into words what we just couldn't do.
Truly this book and the other two children’s books by Matthew Paul Turner are treasures that I am so excited to share with my grandkids. The life affirming words in each book have become prayers and praises as I converse with the kids and their Maker. In "When I Pray for You", the author has captured the thoughts, hopes, cheers and fears of every parents and written them into this book, using descriptive, yet crisp language. The author and illustrator were intentional to be inclusive in the illustrations of the children. The pages are filled with diversity, creativity and personality, as you turn the pages, your kid will likely see someone who looks like him or her. Finally we have books that feature the beauty and diversity of all the kids in our communities.
This newest book by Matthew Paul Turner is my favorite yet. I was in tears reading it. All the things we pray over our kids, so beautifully expressed in this book. I am going to read this to my children over and over again. It is stunning to look at, each page filled with such attractive pictures! This book is a treasure that I will give as bonuses and have fun reading to my kids for years to come! I received this book from the publisher as a part of the begin squad but these are my honest opinions and my absolute LOVE for the book is sincere!
A unbelievable book! Reading it, you sense the overflowing love of a mother for her child, and the illustrations are a delight. I was charmed by the 2-page spread where the reader has to turn the book sideways. Excellent for a grandparent to read to grandkids, too! I will be buying several copies for families I love.I really appreciate that the first line says, “From the moment I saw you,” not “from the day you were born” making the book easily relatable for all kids and mothers, regardless of how they came to be a family.
This book is a must-own! It is the number one bonus to give at baby showers. This book speaks to the expectant mother, the fresh parent, the in-the-throws-of-it parent, the experienced and seasoned parent, the grandparent, and to every kid at every age and scene of development - it would even be a meaningful book for a graduate! This book is beyond beautiful. It will bring tears, beauty, and inspiration. It is Matthew Paul Turner's best children's book so far. The illustrations are perfect. The words are even better -- echoing the hearts and minds of every parent that has ever lived. You will not only one copy of this book, you will a lot of to share it with the people that you love!
Matthew Paul Turner has captured childhood beautifully with his words; the prayers, wishes, hopes and dreams of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and mates for the kids in their lives. I'm head over heels for his portrayal of children just being children through light saber duels, garage bands, and small girls twirling just to name a few. The illustrations provided by Kimberley Barnes are stunning! So much detail and color. Kids will have fun studying every page. They will search cardboard box forts, feathers exploding from a pillow, a hat created from a pot and a lot of more examples of childhood imagination and angst. I've found myself shedding a tear each time I've read through the pages of "When I Pray for You". My kids are grown, but you know what? I still pray these prayers for them. I still pray "you choose hope should you ever face fear. And seek wisdom with patience when the pathway's unclear."My granddaughters literally argue over who gets to be the small girl on the cover when I read the book to them. This book is sure to be a family favorite for years to come.
This book draws you in with its captivating, inclusive artwork. Then the lyrical verses touch your heart.I dare you to read this without getting teary-eyed!I love this book SO MUCH, as do my 3 is will be my go-to book for baby showers, mentees and friends. Also excellent instead of a Valentine card or Easter card for older kids!We all pray for our kids; this book expresses heartfelt prayer for our children in the sweetest way!
I bought this book for my newest granddaughter. I absolutely loved it so much I bought more copies to give to friends. One friend, my pastor, also liked it so much he bought several more copies to distribute. And, I shared it with the staff at my dentist's office. They in turned told me they plan to it for their kids (from young ages to college students).This is a MUST HAVE for a child's library (no matter what the age). I would even suggest that it would create an perfect bonus for graduates.
I should have saved my 5 star rating that I gave A Sea of Split Peas for this album. Solid sound, amazing momentum, energy builds and builds in the best way, without dropping the hook until Ms. Barnett wants it to, not when the audience does. This is a more calculated sound then what we have previously seen from this artist, yet there is also a raw, borderline unhingedness to it at time, as if she was either in a amazing mood having lots of fun making this album, or was seriously @#$%ed at the world. Either way, Brava!
Courtney Barnett is a very cool Australian singer-songwriter. The songs are more about how life is and not romantic notion of what we'd like it to be. The title is quite appropriate for the album and I'm reminded of Suzanne Vega by the themes and content of this album. Courtney's has a very amazing singing voice and a cool Australian accent.
The sound is noticeably low fi. The voice isn't the prettiest in the world. The melodies aren't intrinsically ill, like amazing art, listening to this album transforms gets me to reexamine the expectations that others put on me. It evokes a sense of uninspired contentment with suburban life. It gets me to ponder about the former lives of roadkill. It makes me feel unashamed for checking out other swimmers in the pool. It makes me wonder if I should be spending $20/week on coffee. It makes me feel ok to think about the daily lives of those I love. It confirms my insecurities but contentment with eating inorganic meal products.If makes me feel n't that all I can really ask for in this damn amazing album?
Okay, so the product arrived on time and well packaged. I love this artist and the quality of the recording. I have two little gripes; first, the cardboard envelope of the cd is so tight that the cd is impossible to remove without forcing thumb and forefinger deep into the package. Second, and most annoying, is that in all my previous on Amazon music, the digital versions (mp3) were immediately available for upon completion of the cd purchase. Not so with these cds of this artist. Still not even viewable on Prime music. So I guess I will have to rip them myself, but that does not place them on prime melody library. bummer.
I bought this album purely for 'Nobody Really Cares If You Don't Go To The Party' - such an instant classic with clever lyrics and a perfect, uncluttered guitar lead. There are a couple of other songs on the album that approach that level. There are a couple of slow, moody numbers that I don't care for. Still, her basic, raw approach to guitar playing is heartfelt and refreshing and she restrains her wit enough in the lyrics that they mesh well with the music. FWIW, in the video for "Nobody Cares" she looks like she's having a lot of fun, more than on SNL. Looking forward to exploring her other recordings.
Lots of media hype for this rockin' young lady. I like the energy and the attitude, and her voice, while not a traditionally amazing one, tends to grow on you after a few listens. Quirky but kind of charming too. I liked this album for the most part but wouldn't rank it among the year's e album starts off with a bang and catches your attention immediately. Lots of songs with a gritty, emotional edge, ranging from amazing to great, but the latest of couple of songs were too slow and rather weak in my opinion and watered down the impact of the rest of the album. But hey, a very promising begin by a very interesting fresh talent. I'll be eager to hear what she does next time around. Overall, I'd give this a rating of 3.5..
Took me a bit of listening to understand what all the hype about Courtney Barnett was ... but then one day something snapped and I fell in love. One of the best albums of 2015, no questions asked. Such a intelligent songwriter with amazing word usage - plus a unbelievable musician to boot. Can't wait to hear more.
Courtney's writing and guitar work is outstanding. I first heard her in passing on a local college radio station and have been a major fan ever since. I own all of her works and testify that she actually steps up the guitar playing live. Don't miss an opportunity to attend one of her shows.
I discovered Courtney Barnett after watching her on an episode of SNL. I fell in love with her instantly. This album is AMAZING. The songs are catchy, I didn't search myself skipping around much at all. I can listen to this begin to finish and really have fun the whole experience (and there aren't a lot of albums I can say that about). I especially loved her lyrics; they are thoughtful, emotionally provocative, but still fun and clever at the same time. I definitely recommend outright buying this... but if you aren't sure or are on the fence, look up her performance on SNL. You won't be disappointed. :)
Courtney Barnett's CD was listed as one of the best of the first six months of 2015 by a well-known melody magazine (named after a classic 60s band); so I decided to check it out. Her drone rock makes me flash on some of Patti Smith's amazing work. "An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in Fresh York)" sparks in my ear with its addictive guitar and Courtney's "I'm thinking of you too" chorus. Similarly, "nobody Really Cares If You Don't Go to the Party" rocks and ambles with such an absence of melody, it's like Barnett really didn't care enough to write one as the lyric shuffles on, "I like hearing your stories but I've heard them all before." Recorded in Australia, Courtney's vocals abrasive and raw, daring the listener to dive into her world. Have fun the swim!
The Punching Preacher. Count Three and Pray is directed by George Sherman and written by Herb Meadow. It stars Van Heflin, Joanne Woodward, Raymond Burr, Phillip Carey and Allison Hayes. A CinemaScope/Technicolor production, melody is by George Duning and cinematography by Burnett Guffey. At first glance it appears to be a movie about a poor man finding his faith and coming amazing in the face of adversity, but there are a lot of more strings to this particular bow. Even if it never quite reaches greatness. Story has Heflin as Luke Fargo, a man who before the Civil Battle was something of a hell raiser, he loved women, he loved to drink, and he loved to fight. While serving in the battle he was emotionally scarred by what he witnessed at The War of Vicksburg, he decided then that a change in his life trajectory was required. The bite here is that Fargo, a Southerner, fought for the North because that was the political side he believed in. So upon returning to his Southern hometown, he's persona non grata, a major issue since he wants to spread the gospel and cast off his previous sins. His efforts are further complicated when he locates himself to the derelict - ramshackle - church and parsonage, to search living there is a feisty orphan girl called Lissy (Woodward), a sharpshooting tomboy with fire in her belly. Right from the off we search Fargo having to reach back to his hellfire club days, forced to brawl when confronted with outright hostility that's being instigated by self appointed city leader Yancey Huggins (Burr on splendidly nasty form). Oh there is plenty of God fearing folk in the city who desperately wish to have the church up and running again, they wish to give Luke a chance, but there's the constant feeling that a leopard never changes its spots, something that is further compounded by the attention Luke receives from the city "madam" (Jean Willes). While the fact that Luke is living under the same roof as young Lissy sets tongues a wagging, unhealthily so. Luke valiantly ploughs on, but his unorthodox methods are sure to be used versus him... As the relationship between Lissy and himself develops, you sense quite early on how things are going to pan out, but the by-play between Heflin and Woodward is amazing viewing. Initially you would be forgiven for thinking that Woodward's hero is going to be greatly annoying, but Woodward quickly dispels those fears to deliver a quite unbelievable portrayal of a wastrel who is unaware she herself needs guidance. Heflin also is amazing value, a true mixed bag of emotions, lurching from tough to vulnerable with consummate ease. We could have done with a bit more of Burr's villainy up front and center, while Hayes' (yummy!) treacherous femme comes off as under written, but the main characterisations are powerful enough to help the thematics. Nicely photographed around the Agoura Hills zone of California by ace lensman Guffey, it's a pleasing production visually. Aurally the musical score provided by Duning has the requisite sedate and bluster moments, though fans of the original Star Trek TV present may search themselves suddenly whisked off on the Enterprise, Duning would clearly rework his score here for Kirk and Spock's adventures. Woodward playing a gal 7 years younger than she actually was asks us for some leeway, while the ending is to my mind a stretch too far, but this is an enjoyable experience for Heflin and Woodward fans. There's amazing action with knuckles (on a Sunday no less!) and horse racing, and plenty of breezy humour as well, making this a picture that's not quite a hidden gem, but definitely worthy of consideration by the Oater loving crowd. 7/10
Poorly laid out, with Answers showing up first, followed by the questions. Not really "logic" puzzles because some info are left out of questions until you (surprisingly) see them in the answers. I wasted $1 in cash, but much more in my time!
This is a amazing book with a few minor flaws. A few of the puzzles are basically the same puzzle worded differently. A couple read as though they were poorly translated from another language.On the whole, though, they are interesting and thought-provoking.
My oldest son is 12 and loves riddles, puzzles and logic android games and books. He recently went out of city for a week with his dad and he was so glad he had this book to fill time on the long journey. His dad was satisfied he got time off from playing 'I Spy' and travel bingo! It was a win/win!! Yay!
Pros: #28 is a amazing logic puzzle, the hardest in the book. There are also some interesting riddles e.g. #ns: But there are a lot of repeated puzzles with almost the same idea, and some just requires easy arithmetic, maybe those are ok for young ere are quite a few typos in the Answer. And some issues are not well formulated.
My 11 year old son has stuttered since he was 2. He loves to read so when I came across this book I figured it would be amazing for him to read about stuttering so he can understand more about it & maybe boost his confidence. He has read the book several times & loves to walk around & tell us small facts he has picked up. It's amazing for children & adults. It's written in a method that is simple for children to understand & explains to them what makes them stutter & that they are not alone. This is a amazing book & i highly recommend it to anyone who stutters or knows anyone who does.
First of all, this was amazing read. Read it in about ten minutes. The content itself is amazing stuff, and I love Bill Johnson and have several books and watch as a lot of YouTube's as I can. But I was looking for more of a literal "how-to" create decrees. This small baby book talks about the importance of what we say and we do need to consider those things... But there wasn't any practical instruction. It could just be me.... I feel like I'm looking for ELEMENTARY level "how-tos" with regard to spiritual things because I literally wish to know HOW do you do the thing!?!?!? But I search that a lot of books I've read fall short of what I'm expecting. We could say it's a flaw in me, but I don't think I'm alone in this. I've learned a lot of things on my own and with prayer asking the Lord how etc. I just thought Bill was gonna literally tell me how to create decrees. I was excited for that, but that's not what happened lol
I agree with others, there is no "how to". If you're going to write a how-to book, define what exactly the thing is, why you should wish to do it, then tell, explicitly, how to go about it. This "book" is more of a jumble of intriguing thoughts that, at best, just dance around the topic without ever getting around to a "how to". It also looks like an editor never touched it. Poorly done. Please take another run at this and do better, or stop it.
The writer did a amazing job on getting us to understand how prayer works, it is more than just saying words. It's all about praying God's Word back to Him and standing on the promises of God. Praying God's promises and uniting our faith with God's Words and living accordingly opens a lot of doors in our lives. Amazing 👍job.
I guess I expected a “How to” book on prayer. I am so hungry to search what works for people that I highly esteem, and of course Bill is in that category. I still feel like such a baby in my prayer life and I feel at a loss as to how to obtain beyond where I am at.
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own unique people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”I Peter 2:9-10
This is the third book I've read this year by this author. The nature and tone is a bit various than his books on long distance thru hikes. For starters, the on the trail comradery of a huge group of individual hikers all seeking to complete the same goal, is absent. This story is about Keith's mostly solo journey which emphasized his growing depression. The zone and weather conditions mirrored his dark is isn't simply a travelogue as much as its a journey of self examination and acceptance.I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Like most people, depression has touched my life.I always have fun Keith's humor, honesty and pluck.
Mr. Foskett’s books always on my “ must read” list, “ High & Low” was a various work than the other. Even though Scotland’s weather seems always gray and rain but the landscape and people are always attractive and charming just hoping that you'll taking the same trip without your depression accompanying you one day . Best wishes! Thanks for the unbelievable read again.
I'm used to reading stories about Fozzie's hiking adventures. In fact, it was his book about his hike on El Camino de Santiago ("The Journey In Between") that place the thru-hiking "bug" in my mind (so far I've hiked 2 miles of the Appalachian Trail!).So I picked up this book, expecting another hiking adventure - but didn't search one. What I did search was an wonderful story about discovering and dealing with depression that needs to obtain into the hands of a lot more zzie, thanks for this book and for your willingness to share your journey and struggles with the world. You tell your story through the lens of an adventurer and a story-teller and your method can reach people like you that wouldn't listen to is possible to with depression, and while this book may not "cure" you, it will tell you what one person did to war it - and this story can support a lot of people.
This author is a unbelievable writer. I have read all of his books and each book takes me on an awesome journey that touches all my senses as if I was really there. This book, High and Low, is not only an adventure but shows deep insight into a soul of a person that doesn't know they have depression. Very helpful in helping us have more understanding and compassion with people around us that war depression. This book would be a amazing bonus to people that are depressed and don't really know it. Unbelievable book. Unbelievable author. Read all of his books. Keith really knows how to tell a story.
Amazing read about thru- hiking Scotland and understanding depression. Gosh those Scottish put names were crazy hard to read, much less pronounce. I wonder if the author had a bit of language barrier too.I didn't really understand when he started feeling poor though. Either I read too quick or the American versus English wording eluded me. At any rate, as someone with depression, I was satisfied to read more about how others cope and how necessary it is to be begin with friends. It's awesome to have someone tell me about their own mental issue or about a loved one. Then I don't feel so isolated and alone fighting my demons.
I read this book out of curiosity based on the description. I'm glad I did, because I tore through the digital pages. I'm not a professional hiker, but his descriptions of the trails didn't bother me at all. I was drawn in as he spoke of how he slowly came to the realization that his mood swings and dark times were definitely caused by depression. There is no rule book that outlines depression, but hearing what others go through helps define what a lot of people are going through and don't even realize it.
I learned a lot about myself by reading this must have been extremely painful to write at times considering it didn't qualify as a real thru hike.But reading it from begin to finish, maybe it really was a real thru is book encouraged me to take a look within myself and evaluate my own struggles with depression.
The writer, who goes by "Fozzie" on the trail, has written a lot more than just a trail journal. Struggling with depression but unable to see it or admit to it, he alternately slogs miserably through the rain, and/or revels in the beauty of a hike across Scotland, all the while feeling confused about what is going on between his ears.Eventually coming to an understanding, he writes in detail about coming to terms with depression, and how he was able to combat it.What interested to me personally were the numbered steps he info at the end of the book: his recommendations. A lot of of the things he recommends are what I have been doing for years to test to stave off my two family curses: Alzheimer's disease and strokes. However, it also came home to me that there's a third family curse: depression. Perhaps the reason I have suffered only mildly from depression over the years is because of my longtime commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Taking Fozzie's words to heart, I plan to fine-tune my current habits with some of his suggestions. I don't feel I am completely immune to depression myself, and can use the extra anks for another amazing adventure, Fozzie!
I have read all of Foskett's books in the past month. This book is quite various from his others, yet strikes me as the culmination of his years of high and lows. I search his books to be spiritual, although he claims to be an athiest, I don't believe it for a second. This is the journey of a man who is finding himself, learning and growing. At times it's funny, other times sad and even ugly. That's life. Mr. Foskett has captured his truth and similar it with a stunning backdrop of the Scottish highlands. I look forward to his future works and want him well. I recommend each of his books, they are unbelievable reads that will create you wish to discover the forgotten wilds.
I began reading this about the same time I hiked the river to river trail in southern Illinois. I also suffer from mild depression. In Fozzie’s previous books I found inspiration to go on my first solo hike, during the hike reading this much more private book which a window into his emotions helped me take a better look at my own emotions. One of the hurdles I faced during my short adventure, just shy of my halfway point of the entire 160 miles I was determined to crush, was my phone failed halfway through, losing my main source of navigation, connection to my wife and daughters, my beloved music, and finally my kindle application providing this book created my morale really low. I faced more physical obstacles on the trail but much worse was churning in my mind. Depression, missing family, failing to quit smoking during hike, stress of trail conditions being poor, spraining an ankle traversing countless equestrian cesspool mud pits, weather, and finally the western terminus just 10 miles away. The remaining path ahead is currently plagued with several sections of the street walk closed due to the Mississippi flooding, which sent me home feeling like a failure despite wading and swimming a half mile of stagnant snake infested water. Once home I felt like I gave up to easy. After a nights rest I was disappointed I didn’t swim those final 10 miles with the 15 lbs in my pack. Feeling low I returned to this book and have now finished it realizing a lot more of the positive aspects of not only my journey but also my life at home and work. Anyone who reads about Keiths journeys can not only search motivation to go on their own, but can also search how process their journey whether it be on any trail, but also their adventure in life.
William McDowell is not singing on this CD. The song was written by him, but there are other artist singing and playing the song. There is only one song on the CD 'I Give Myself Away' and it is sung and palyed 5 various ways. I should have known better when there was no photo to e melody is good, I thought William McDowell would be singing and not the other artists.
I ordered the wrong cd- the accompaniment performance but I did obtain the correct one finally. that was my mistake not fully paying attention when I clicked that send button. amazing cd, the reason I purchased it from listening to the Yolanda Adams morning present of gospel melody in dc 104.1
I love this CD. It is so soothening. The words have strong meaning. William McDowell,I really believe you helpedp a lot of people through trying times listening to this song. As for me, it brings about peace in the mist of it all.
