Grace Review

by Matt Collar

From the Latin-infused opening track, "Señor Amor," to the gospel-tinged vocal performance on the ballad "For All We Know," pianist/vocalist Joe McBride delivers one of his most diverse performances on record with Grace. Featuring the added support of saxophonists Stanley Turrentine and Kirk Whalum, this is the one album in McBride's oeuvre that lands more on the jazz side of the jazz-pop fence. Easily recommended to smooth jazz fans, Grace is the place to start listening to McBride -- but it might also be the place to stop listening, as most of his other albums do not live up to this one.
