Julian Smith - "Pickin' In Paradise"

"Pickin' In Paradise" - CD

by Julian Smith


Clean, clean, clean....is what this guy is all about, folks.  And, gospel music is his first love and what this album is all about.  This CD is a compilation of good old time gospel tunes that Julian has brilliantly arranged and played, and a few that he has written himself.  King David's Psaltery is one that he wrote and has won him a couple national guitar contests. 

Mr. Smith is a very shy and unassuming person from deep southern Georgia and would be the last person on earth to do any braggin' on his playing.... so, I'll just have to do it for him...  Folks the playing on this album is impeccable and wonderfully done. With his low key personality, it has taken Julian a number of years to start to get the worldly recognition that he deserves.  But, he's arrived - and, he is here in this CD for all to enjoy.  Enjoy...

Tune List:

Just a Closer Walk, When They Ring Those Golden Bells, "Holy, Holy, Holy," Home Folks, King David's Psaltery, He's the Lily of the Valley, Paradise Park, Taylor-Made Rag, Nether Strings, "Rose, Wood & Steel," The Unclouded Day.....
