MUSIC REVIEW BY Ed Trefzger, JazzWeek

There is a small but long-standing tradition of jazz informed by faith, whether it's a Gospel-influenced tune, or more expansive spiritual pieces like the sacred works of Duke Ellington or Coltrane's "A Love Supreme." Guitarist and composer John Moulder has communicated his personal faith in a suite entitled Trinity, which is his musical interpretation of "our journey in God from the primordial to the eternal." Moulder chronologically follows that trek, with the suite's genesis in the frenetic "Chaos." That movement is followed by the peaceful mood of "Creation" and a jaunty, 5/4 "Exodus." On electric and acoustic guitars, he traces other feelings of the familiar biblical narrative through an uptempo "Proclamation of the Unexpected," an uplifting "Resurrection" and a bluesy shuffle with the ending "Freedom." With a range of feelings that mirror that of the stories of the Judeo-Christian tradition, Moulder and guests including Laurence Hobgood, Paul Wertico and Paul McCandless have created a work of musical and spiritual beauty.
