Linnea Good's 10th and finest album of songs from the centre of life
"Her best work yet!"
Runner-up for the BC Interior Music Awards top Christian/Gospel album of the year
Heard there: “Linnea's concert in Bathurst, NB on Thursday night was amazing - just amazing. I loved the new music, and I loved the old music, I loved Linnea, and I loved David, I loved their children - and I had a great, great time getting' into the groove! I almost took flight when Linnea did ‘I'll Fly Away’!”
Linnea’s gift is in writing music that is at the once new and old. In Momentary Saints, Welsh hymns become love songs, Irish folk tunes sing laments of the faithful, global warming takes a jazz stride, a gospel story goes latin. She plays a powerful and evocative piano, accompanied by the tasty drumming of David Jonsson, and the locked-in groove of Bruce Harding’s bass. They are joined by some of Canada's finest studio musicians: David Sinclair, Michael Creber, Finn Manniche, Henry Lee, Mark Ferris, Terry Townson, Steve Hilliam, Rod Murray, Ed Johnson. With Paul Gitlitz’s Juno award-winning production skills, these songs of the spirit soar.
Linnea Good’s soaring celtic melodies and jazz-laced psalm-blues have taken her around the continent and world. Now (suddenly) celebrating her 20th anniversary in the singing business, Linnea and a deliciously expanded Good Company Band are launching her tenth album: Momentary Saints.
Included in the album: the free-flying gospel-feel Stand on the Rock, Rivers of Memory: Linnea’s powerful rendition of ‘by the rivers of Babylon’, accompanied by Bruce Harding’s heart-stopping flute choreography, Rain on Snow – accompanied by Terry Townson’s mournful flugel horn and David Golden’s now-famous comedic dig at church choirs: The Three Tenors.
