It’s been an Amazing Grace kind of week, thinking of Mama. This morning it was the first hymn we sang at church. So, here’s a bit of amazing music to uplift your soul today.
A friend recently gifted me with jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut’s CD, Blessed Quietude. We’ve enjoyed several of his jazz compilations, but this one has been on constant replay. You can feel Cyrus Chestnut’s faith and Gospel roots, especially in his inspiring rendition of Amazing Grace. Here’s a YouTube edition to have a listen…
“I believe the ability to play music is a gift from God and every time I play, I’m thankful.” Cyrus Chestnut.
grace, peace & amazing (jazzed up) grace

p.s. Since we’re talking Amazing Grace, awhile back I wrote a blog about one of Mama’s favorite movies, Amazing Grace (which is also one of my favorites.) You can read about it by clicking here: Amazing Grace (& the Abolition of the Slave Trade.)
