MIDWEST RECORD - Album Review
SAM RUCKER/Redemption: A happy album coming from a happier place for the sax man, he proceeds to blow up a joyful storm of smooth jazz that shows how much better up is than down. Easy going without being easy listening, there's lots here to sink your teeth into as this is music that touches the heart as well as the ears. Well done.

Reflective of its title and the individual themes driving its soulful, engaging tracks, Sam Rucker’s emotionally compelling third album REDEMPTION is powered by a deep spiritual vision of true soul survival. The versatile Virginia-based saxophonist uses bright melodies, tight grooves and the occasional uplifting, gospel flavored female vocals to enhance the musical praise, and to count the blessings that saw the artist through the dark times. While Rucker’s previous works were infused with inspirational messages, his shift from featuring top guest stars on his previous album TELL YOU SOMETHING (Norman Connors, Bobby Lyle, Euge Groove) to carrying the emotional passion himself is indicative of the many emotional and creative breakthroughs he’s made over the past five years. REDEMPTION is as divinely inspired as Smooth Jazz gets!
