Vineyard Music's Miami LIVE Worship album review and give-away.

I had the opportunity to review this album and let me tell you... it is FRESH!  And unlike any worship music I currently have on the iPod.




You can picture yourself on the beach with this music and I got to wondering, wouldn't it be cool to go to a worship service on Miami beach?!  


A description is best left to the folks who wrote the promo:

What happens when a group of 20+ musicians and 10+ songwriters steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound? What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice? Among the 2000 people that attend the Miami Vineyard Community Church, there are over a hundred singers, instrumentalists and songwriters that make up its eclectic worship ministry. For one night, these musicians joined together in worship and invited the church to document the sound that is uniquely MIAMI VINEYARD LIVE.
This distinctive bi-lingual liturgy is filled with many flavors, from Latino claves to gospel two-step to funk and soul to delay-laden rock guitars of modern worship, yet they all work together seamlessly to create a new sound and voice that is authentic and refreshing. From anthems of praise and proclamation to songs of intimacy and adoration, there is a common thread running deep throughout this recording and that is true worship of the Living God as an expression of His Kingdom breaking in on the streets and beaches of Miami, FL.

There are plenty of places to get a little sampling of this CD including their Vineyard Music page,  their Facebook Band Page, their purchase page on Vineyard, and Vimeo.  It is hard to provide a better description that that above but I just loved the unique sounds of this music compared to anything else that I own.  In this dreary Michigan March winter, it begs imagining sitting on a beach somewhere enjoying the smells, sounds and flavors found there.  If you close your eyes and pretend, it is like a mini-vacation.


Here is the tracklist for the CD:
HOLY SPIRIT COME
GLORIA A DIOS SOLO (WITH MY WHOLE HEART)
LORD REIGN IN ME
I LOVE YOUR MERCY
AT ALL TIMES
IF YOU SAY GO
EVERYTHING TO ME
WITH ALL OF MY HEART
YOUR NAME IS GREAT
YOU RESTORED ME
BREATHE
HALLELUJAH ANYHOW
HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD

I highly recommend this CD.  The folks at propeller are sponsoring a give away as well so if you wish to win please
