Product Description:

Also available in a 3-pack with LIVE AT ORCHESTRA HALL, DETROIT and HERE'S TO LIFE.
Personnel includes: Joe Williams, Marlena Shaw (vocals); Jerry Peters (piano).
Recorded at Conway Recording, Hollywood, California on September 20-23, 1994.
Williams recorded this collection of spirituals for Telarc at the age of 75, just four years before his death. Though this is certainly a minor work in his catalog, Williams' performances here are very restrained and quite beautiful, and his voice shows little sign of wear. R&B composer Johnny Pate's arrangements are steeped in R&B, soul, and gospel but marred by the overuse of synthesizer. Nonetheless, they serve to bring out an R&B/pop side of Williams that is quite exciting.
Several of the tracks feature duets with Marlena Shaw, who shows off her fervent Gospel side. The most moving tracks are the very simple and unadorned versions of "Were You There?," "In My Heart," and "The Lord's Prayer," each sung in an amazingly rich and resonant baritone and accompanied by Jerry Peter's sensitive piano.
