The Sojourners, a gospel trio from Canada, show the power of voices coming together on their self-titled second CD. The album's 11 songs are a mix of traditional gospel with arrangements by the Sojourners and contemporary songs with a spiritual theme. The joyfulness of 'Great Day' leaps out of the speakers with lead vocalist Marcus Mosely and backing singers Ron Small and Will Sanders proclaiming the message supported by producer Steve Dawson's slide guitar and Mike Kalanj's Hammond B-3 organ. 'Another Soldier Gone' takes a more somber tone with Sanders taking a mournful lead vocal. It's a song with added meaning with the ongoing wars in Irap and Afghanistan. Dorothy Love Coates's 'Strange Man' gets a blues treatment with jazz overtones. The Sojourners's version of 'The Neighborhood,' the title track of the 1990 album by Los Lobos, has the feel of a prayer of deliverance form teh pitfalls of modern life. The song begins wiht the trio singing without instrumentation before the full band kicks in with a blues/rock groove to drive the message home.
