I find praise and worship music to be a wonderful soundtrack for my day-to-day life. It's uplifting, and keeps my mind focused on what's important.
Additionally, as a fan of instrumental piano music, I have loved Jim Brickman's work for many years now. Jim Brickman is a well-known and highly respected pianist and songwriter in today's contemporary music world. He is truly a very gifted musician.
To find a collaboration of both of these factors was fantastic! Courtesy of Family Christian Stores, I recently had the opportunity to review his album Pure Worship. As usual, Mr. Brickman's instrumental piano music was flawless, and the song selection was great.
Family Christian Store's listing: Pure Worship is Jim Brickman's fourth album, featuring pop-style
instrumentals, star studded vocal collaborations, and beautiful
compositions. Jim Brickman has four certified gold albums and amassed 27
Top 40 singles on the adult contemporary charts, including 14 Top 10s.
Brickman received top honors with two GRAMMY Award nominations, two
SESAC Songwriter of the Year awards, the Canadian Country Music Award
and the Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Association.

My four year old fondly refers to this CD as "her most favorite lullaby
music" which I think means she finds it to be quite soothing. I've really enjoyed listening to this CD, both at home and in the car. Some of my all time favorite worship songs, such as Mighty to Save, Cornerstone and In Christ Alone are included on this disc and I couldn't be more pleased with the variety of songs. It's a great mix of traditional and contemporary music, and would be appealing to listeners of all ages.
