First Call

First Call

Mixed Vocal Jazz Trio from Los Angeles, CA.

The Christian a cappella group, First Call, have reinvigorated the familiar Christmas classics with fresh arrangements and sincere renditions of the old favorites. Appearances by guest vocalists and multi-tracking allow for a multiplicity of textures and sounds. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" will rekindle good will toward all in even the most cynical holiday Grinch. "The New Twelve Days of Christmas" replaces the partridge and pear tree with shopping malls and choir rehearsals, and segues brilliantly into "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." The shimmering, pure vocal tones are augmented by the crisp, digital production. This is an "Evening" you won't want to miss!


First Call : Rejoice : 00  1 CD

First Call : Rejoice

Melodie (or Mel), Marty and Bonnie first got together as studio musicians in Nashville in the 1970s, "first call" on music producers' lists, a term that fit when they became a much-beloved Christian group. Two Christmas CDs, "An Evening in December" Volumes I and II, have long been bestsellers in the PAC catalog, but the group stopped recording together in the 1990s. Imagine our joy to see them back in the recording studio to do this powerful collection of a cappella hymns (OK, there's occasional light accompaniment, picky, picky). From the first strains of "Doxology," we know we're in for something very special, and "I Sing the Mighty Power of God," the richly harmonic "How Deep the Father's Love for Us," "The Solid Rock," "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded," "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing," the title tune, "O Sifuni Mungu" (All Creatures of Our God and King), "Untitled Hymn" (Come to Jesus) and "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" only leave us wanting to hear more. Welcome back, Mel, Marty and Bonnie, thanks for "Rejoice," one of the best Gospel collections we've heard, and please send us more!

Songlist: Doxology, I Sing The Mighty Power Of God, How Deep The Father's Love For Us, The Solid Rock, O Sacred Head, Now Wounded, Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing, Rejoice, O Sinfuni Mungu (All Creatures Of God And King), Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus), The Lord Bless You And Keep You
