The Word was once a one-off gospel album featuring pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, organist John Medeski, guitarist Luther Dickinson, bassist Chris Crew, and drummer Cody Dickenson. The group toured extensively for this album with positive feedback, then everyone returned to their "regular" groups and lived their normal lives. After 14 years, the group released their second album in 2015 but this was their humble debut, released by Ropeadope.
The first ever jam session must have occurred in a church. When the Spirit starts to move, nobody watches the clock. Keyboard player John Medeski, on break from his full time gig with Medeski, Martin & Wood, gathered together the North Mississippi Allstars and pedal steel player Robert Randolph for this high-stepping dance through a session of gospel blues.

Randolph is the real revelation here, as his pedal steel work steers a wide path away from the weeping willow-isms his instrument is usually associated with in the country realm for some squealing blues work. The hand-clapping Sunday service stomper "Without God" is converted into a Southern rock powerhouse. On "Waiting on My Wings," Medeski's clip-clopping organ notes lead a funk workout worthy of the almighty Meters.

As nobody in this band steps up to the mike to sing, all ten tunes are completely instrumental. Without gospel's soul-deep lyrics, this recording sacrifices much of its spiritual impact. Unless you're already familiar with the sermon-in-song messages of these mostly traditional selections, you won't likely receive their originally intended blessings.

But if you want to hear what church might sound like if the Sabbath is ever moved from Sunday morning to Saturday night, this is your fantasy disc.
