“Walking in the Light”
Elder Randall Ogans Sr. & Dorian Ogans
From the Alpha 7 Ministries EP Jesus the Light of the World
(EP release date: January 19, 2024)
By Robert M. Marovich
On the charming instrumental “Walking in the Light,” father-son inspirational jazz duo Elder Randall Ogans Sr. and Dorian Ogans evoke the image of a procession of believers swaggering into the light of God’s presence.
Like a deacon inviting the seated congregation to prayer, Elder Randall’s percussive punctuations of chirpy organ bring a churchy vibe to the otherwise easygoing atmosphere. It’s the kind of selection to set the tone for a pleasant Sunday afternoon service.
