T.A.O. (The Anointed Ones) charms the musical world with the delightfully smooth Jazz/Gospel album "Journey to the Top Begins." Using the flute as the main instrument, Richard D. Hegens, Jr. skillfully compiles a collection of easy listening pieces with polished maturity and grace. His talent shines on songs such as "Keeping It Real" or "Ballad," as he gives the audience a performance that captures the emotional spirit his music reveals. His refined flute talents stir up keen interest as he leads off the album with a not-so-traditional rendition of "Amazing Grace" which conjures a slightly livelier tempo and strong and solid beat. Although most of this album is instrumental, "Safe in His Arms" and "When I Think About the Lord" present beautiful female vocals as sweet and harmonious as the lyrics they sing. Jazz flavor at its best, "Otulp" highlights striking piano, soft brushes, and the melodious sounds of the flute. Sounds of stunning flute blended with engaging smooth Jazz/Gospel will lift your spirits and soothe your soul when you hear the wonderful songs of T.A.O.'s "Journey to the Top Begins."
