In the genre of Christian music Ray Lyon has found a safe harbor. He has released on his own label Burning Blue Records three albums, Farewell To Shadowlands (1993), Figures Of The True (2000) and in 2007 Beginning To See. His newest project is entitled Trinity One (2016).
The new album is composed, arranged and produced by Ray Lyon except for Solar (Flare), which is by Miles Davis. Keyboardist Ray Lyon is supported by drummer Bill Berg and bassist Jimmy Haslip. Ray describes his new music: “This music represents a diverse melodic approach to modern jazz … highly listenable yet complex in beauty, depth and execution these are storytelling tunes that inspire and expand the contemporary jazz genre”.
If you know the passion with which Ray has internalized the music of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays, his music style is easily comprehensible. For many, who miss this music, Ray provides replacement in abundance. Trinity One embodies this transcendent, astral atmosphere and Bill Berg and Jimmy Haslip perfectly fit into Ray’s musical concept.
