On WINDING THROUGH LIFE, Lawson and his band take time out from blazing their fiery bluegrass path to offer an all-gospel selection. Certainly, a bluegrass group with roots as deep as theirs is no stranger to the spirituals that make up such an important part of the traditional bluegrass repertoire. It's one thing to toss off a quick spiritual, but quite another to devote an entire album to songs of faith like these. Fortunately for all concerned, Lawson and company have vocal abilities to rival their picking prowess. In fact, the latter often takes a back seat here to the former. The tight, pure vocal harmonies of the group take center stage throughout the album. Nevertheless, there's enough solid picking to remind us that this is a world-class bluegrass group guiding us down the gospel path.
