Unity of Madison Jazz Band plays a genre of music known as Spirit Jazz. It takes an eclectic set of American musical influences - principally jazz and gospel - and blends them with channeled lyrics to produce a unique yet somehow familiar style. The three song writers, Sheri Pittman, Steve Roberts and Bill Roberts have worked together for over a decade. Sheri contributes vocals and lyrics that she writes and channels from "the other side". Her sweet and warm vocal style will immediately pull you in. Bill's virtuoso guitar skills are apparent throughout this album, particularly on the two stunning instrumentals that he contributed. Steve's training as a jazz pianist allows him to compose music for those lyrics and arrange the songs. Pat Dieter's contributes some very compelling solos and horn hooks on alto sax, and Pete Calgaro and Bill Beckman supply a rock-solid rhythm section on drums and bass that always provides the "just right" foundation for the songs.
