TBGB Pick of the Week: July 1, 2013

“I Can Dance”
Brent Jones feat. the Orange County Gospel Choir
Available on iTunes (July 16, 2013)

“You know, I’ve been in the church all my life and people have said worship is a slow song.  You’re WRONGGGG!”

So declares Brent Jones, Grammy and Stellar Award nominated recording artist, producer, music, choir master, and former leader of the T.P. Mobb, as he and the Orange County Gospel Choir demonstrate how they worship with their feet.  The energetic tempo is appropriately aerobic and charismatic. “I can dance with Him all night,” they sing, then contribute a wordless melody line sure to have listeners oh-ing along.

For Jones, dancing with Jesus is metaphorical as well as physical.  “In my imagination, Jesus is the master choreographer.  He shows us what steps to take as we dance through life.”

“I Can Dance,” a track from Jones’ forthcoming album, Feel Good Sunday,” is available as a single on iTunes starting July 16, 2013.
