Hidden Gems: All-Star Quartets – “Their Day Will Come”

Several years ago now, Daywind produced a couple of projects that featured “All-Star Quartets.”  The first project was of current material, some at least which had been recorded recently by mainline groups.  The second project was a collection of hymns.  The story was that they would grab someone at NQC and send them into a makeshift studio to record a part on the song.  You wound up with pairings like Ernie Haase, Daniel Riley, Jason Clark, and Christian Davis recording a quartet song together (this was a real pairing, on the song “Love Answered”).  This particular song features Depp Britt on tenor, Loren Harris on lead, Scott Mills (of the Southern Brothers) on baritone, and Dan Clark on bass.  This tune was a flowing, mid-tempo song with a bit of a Latin feel.  The three top parts each take solo lines on the verses, with the full quartet sound on the chorus.  Loren Harris knocked the lead part on this out of the park, and the chorus features some of the smoothest singing and interesting chord progressions on the disc.  It’s a great lyric that pays tribute to the “unsung heroes” in our lives.  If you’ve got this CD, it’s the very last song on the disc, so spin it up, because they really did save the best for last.  It’s a very nice cut that just leaves you feeling good.

    Hmmm. Not bad, but I think I prefer “Maplewood Methodist Church” along similar lines.
