The Electric Rev
Style:A soulful hybrid of blues, funk and gospel Top tracks: "Elijah's Road," "Pray for Me"

In a nutshell: With a voice like Lyle Lovett and the guitar chops of B.B. King, Reverend Jimmie Bratcher preaches an unusually funky gospel on his latest album. But it is one that no less moving and inspiring than the most well-worn worship song. Bratcher, a regular on TBN's Love, Marriage and Stinking Thinking, tries his hand at everything from impassioned dobro breakdowns ("Elijah's Road"), a New Orleans-style shuffle ("Green Bananas") and sax-driven funk on this fun and surprisingly powerful disc.
