The name of Dave Cleveland can be found on the credits of a host of albums from top name Christian artists, which include Steven Curtis Chapman, Anointed and Michael W Smith. This album marks the return to the early worship roots of the Nashville guitarist. Dave can play any style with masterly ease and what attracts me about this 12-track album that even with these well tried oldies there is freshness. Many different influences are drawn upon to recreate "Give Thanks", "More Precious" and "O Lord, You're Beautiful", a song that rekindles for me memories of the impact of the late Keith Green's music on my life. I detect hints of jazz and bluegrass as guitar, mandolin, dobro and banjo are called upon to interpret the varied moods of worship. 'Guitars In Worship' is not the album title to spark enthusiasm in this listener, but all the more enjoyable to discover its delights that waft across your soul like a cool breeze in the furnace of a summer heat wave.
