Ace Gospel Saxophonist and Music Minister, Shola Sax is out with a fresh body of work Titled “Hymns and Worship” to bless and inspire the body of Christ with the aim to improve their mental health psychologically and increase their longing for the true God.
The 14 Track album features Shola Sax on soprano saxophone with prolific Pianist and producer TeeKeyz. “Hymns and Worship” adopts the original concept of ancient and Modern hymnal with fusions of Saxophone and Piano further by changing up the lineup and tossing in some unexpected jazz surprises, including a medley that miraculously blends contemporary worship songs.
Shola Sax is one of the known few contemporary Saxophonists in Nigeria who is vibrant, young, a prolific performer, astute musico-quinessential, a born dancer, Songwriter, Worship Leader, Music Director with a very strong sense of direction.
His desire to see a rise in the mental health of his listeners as a result of the global economic meltdown which also has contributed to the decrease in people’s relationship with God is a great inspiration for this new Album.
And in his words “The psychological effect of COVID19 on those who fought and defeated the disease like me, who witnessed it and who lost loved ones to it led to the increase in my thirst to create something that will aid good Mental Health, Relieve Stress and increase intimate relationship with God. The songs on the album “Hymns and Worship” were carefully selected and re-arranged to suite its purpose.”
