I am a melodist, but the melodies that come from the words I hear in the Psalms, I think they are the best melodies I create. And I think it’s because there’s a power in those words. . . . You can feel the power that God channels through that music. – Yelena Eckemoff


Pianist-composer Yelena Eckemoff adds to her already impressive corpus of settings for the Psalms. The album is a new installment in a long-term musical project that began with 2018s Better Than Gold and Silver, and once again teams Eckemoff with that albums trumpeter Ralph Alessi and bassist Drew Gress, along with guitarist Adam Rogers and drummer Nasheet Waits.
