Jazz pianist Pamela York has a new album out, this time of hymns and spirituals. It’s called Lay Down This World, and the opening track will be a hit with Lutherans. Check it out here at iTunes. It’s also available at Amazon and elsewhere. It’s rare that I buy an entire album straight up without previewing every track, but Pam’s previous albums are terrific, and she’s also a great person: I met her at Berklee College of Music, and we went to church together at Park Street in Boston. Seriously, go buy it right now.
