Clark Bondy (sax), Gary Hemenway (piano) and Brian Brickley (drums) join Michael for this artistic masterpiece of all original contemporary jazz fusion.

REVIEW: "What a delightful surprise to find your recording River of God for sale at a local Christian bookstore. I listened to about 30 seconds of a demo tape and quickly bought it. It is so refreshing to know that Christians are producing and releasing quality contemporary instrumental music. Thank you for letting God use your gifts to glorify him and for sharing your beautiful music with the body." Gordon & Pamela Anderson, Portland, OR
