Patrick Lundy & the Ministers of Music feat. LeJuene Thompson
From the album Way Maker – 25th Anniversary Live Recording
(album release: March 4, 2021)
By Robert M. Marovich
Produced with brilliance by Cedric Thompson, “Cover Me” by Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music is a candidate for JGM’s year-end Best Of list.
Featured vocalist (and Cedric’s spouse) LeJuene Thompson’s dramatic singing on this plea for spiritual aid and a fortified faith during times of uncertainty is cradled by creamy, dynamic harmonies from the Ministers of Music. Although the lush arrangement rises in intensity, the song’s overall vibe is of a fervent prayer whispered at eventide. Richard Smallwood’s influence is all over this piece like fingerprints. Extraordinary.
