5 years ago, when I introduced the Retro Hymns project, I thought that folks would really enjoy it and it could meet a need for churches and schools. On the Michael Jackson ‘Thriller’ Special Edition Quincy Jones talks about creating music that moves you and when you do that, you’ve got a chance that it will move others. On a MUCH smaller scale, that’s the way I have always approached projects here at AnderKamp Music. I try to create music that I enjoy playing and using at church and just trust that if I enjoy it, then others could too.
I’ve had a tremendous response from folks from Australia to Cape Town, South Africa using the Retro Hymns 1 collection from the Horns & Rhythm Series.
And with so many artists and bands using horns (Danny Gokey, Unspoken, Mercy Me, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Chris Stapleton and many, many others), this just feels like the perfect time to introduce Retro Hymns 2.
What is the ‘Retro Hymns’ project?
This is a collection of hymn arrangements in our Horns & Rhythm Series inspired by some of the grooves and feels of the past. We’ve taken our inspiration from some of the great horn bands throughout the years. So if you like Chicago, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power, James Brown, Billy Joel and The Miami Sound Machine, you might enjoy this collection of arrangements.
If you want to get an idea of what this new project will sound like, it’s easy to do. Just listen to Retro Hymns 1! Click here for more information about that collection and to hear the arrangements.
