I need thee every hour

 

This arrangement is a blend of styles; the verses are done in the style of a Jazz ballad. The hope was to capture intimacy with a string bass, light piano, and brushes on the drums. The choruses are in a very traditional gospel style with a b-3 organ, with the melody flowing as it was sung so many times at the beginning of services like the ones at Greater St. John Church of God in Christ in Mansfield, Ohio.  Hope you catch the little joke in the introduction.
