Review: The prolific Russian-born, North Carolina-based pianist/composer adds a sacred dimension to the ambitious series of concept albums in her extensive catalogue her new 2-CD set, which is based on psalms from the Bible. The new album includes both vocal and instrumental versions of 10 songs she conceived as works of modern jazz rather than part of the Christian music canon. The music is highly melodic, multilayered, intricately structured jazz that takes full advantage not only of her virtuoso pianism, but also of the distinctive talents of the all-star team of instrumentalists and vocalists. Disc 2 offers completely different instrumental compositions, not merely the music without the vocals.
