Reviews - What do customers think about Stand (In The Light)?
Finally! Jun 24, 2009
It should suffice to say that it's refreshing to have new material from one of the few true male vocalist (Soul/R&B/what-have-you) left. Donny is gone, Luther is gone, Marvin is gone. Others (Jeffrey Osborne, Johnny Gill, Glenn Jones, Phil Perry) probably can't get recording contracts in this "New" market and Stevie skips 5 to 10 years between recordings. The songs are nicely done and James' voice is in top-form. I'm over-joyed with this purchase.
Quite Nice... Jun 21, 2009
It's been a long time since I've listened to his music and boy am I asking myself why? This CD is rather relaxing but yet makes you want to jump up and stomp your feet. Each song is a winner.
Not my favourite... Jun 6, 2009
James Ingram is probably one of my all time favourite singers, starting with the contribution on Quincy jones' The Dude, all the way to Masters at Work's Our Time Is Coming which is a tonic and powerful album that went fairly unnoticed. Needless to say I was quite happy to see a full James Ingram cd released.
However, after listening to this collection of songs, I must confess my disappointment. The quality of the songs is uneven, the production is weak, and two out of the 10 tracks (total playing time on this cd is just over 42 minutes, just like in the old vinyl days....) are classics we have all heard thousands of times ("Everything must change", from 1974, and his very own duet with Michael McDonald, "Yah mo be there"). This sounds like a patch of songs put together to release a cd as soon as they got the magic number (10 tracks), and if you don't believe me, look at the year of the songs, ranging from 74 to 06, for this 08 release... Also, James Ingram's voice is not up to par in a couple of songs (must be the production I am referring to because he was spectacular on the Masters at Work release). I can understand the announced intention (gospel songs), but the whole is simply unconvincing and too wooly. Best tracks in my opinion are at the end of the cd, "Everlast" from 2005 being a collaboration between James and Leon Ware (by the way, check this one out :Musical Massage)
If you want to enjoy the voice and savoir-faire of James Ingram, go to the albums I mention above, or listen to Never Felt So Good, or his debut It's Your Night. AND, if you are into gospel performance by an artist and guests, listen to this one : The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter 1, which is in my opinion a strong effort, regardless of the style.
I'll just put this cd on the side and wait for the next James Ingram song, solo or as a guest artist, and continue enjoying his previously released materials.
This CD is Great! May 7, 2009
I love this CD. It has a great message and sound. When I listen to this CD it helps me to get my mind on Jesus Christ. I recently saw James Ingram on the 700 club and he performed the song "Don't Let Go" it was nice to see! I recommend this gospel CD!
Stand in the Light Apr 20, 2009
While writing the review my Haitian friend came into the room, he voiced his opinion that he likes James Ingram but doesn't like everything on this particular album. I agree with him somewhat but I think it is the mood I am at the listening time. It has been a long time since I have really heard James Ingram, it did bring back a lot of memories. I searched for the recording after seeing him with Tavis Smiley on PBS. I am happy to add an update to my collection. Love, Everthing Must Change, and have many recordings by other artists of this song.

James Ingram releases his first inspirational album with Stand (In The Light). James comes from the musical school of Quincy Jones, where melody is king.
