Alma Matters: Alma Matters

Rich vocals by Sandy Cressman, Tony Lindsay, Natalie Cressman, Julianna Cressman,Peter Apfelbum, Destani Wolf and Terrance Kelly range from gospel to funk on this richly textured album lead by drummer/vocalist Jeff Weinmann. The pastoral tones supplied by Apfelbum’s flute, Cressman’s brass and other woodwinds arranged by Peter Apfelbaum make for enchanting moments, as the churchy feel of “Wade in the Water,” “Gospel Sermon” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” mix uplifting messages with Sunday feelings of hope. The team gets funky on “The Unknown” and a Latin pulse makes “Shadow Woman” a real charmer.  The most jazzy pieces are the peppy and percussive “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” and the encouraging “Get Involved.” Music with a good message!
