About "Heaven"

In good academic fashion, we try not to hype or oversell. This, however, you must check out.

Dr. William Edgar has been presenting "Heaven in a Nightclub"--an evening concert/lecture on the history of jazz--for years. In 2007, as a benefit concert for Chesterton House, pianist and philosopher Edgar performed with a stellar group of special guests, including vocalist Ruth Naomi Floyd, saxophonist Joe Salzano, and Grammy Award winning bassist John Patitucci. For the first time, a professional recording of "Heaven in a Nightclub" is now available.

 You can read more about the concert and, much better still, listen to two minutes of each track at If you would like the complete concert experience, audio tracks of Andy Crouch's introduction and intermission talk (not on the CD) are available here:

Do listen to the free audio excerpts on CDBaby--we are confident that you will not be disappointed. The double CD runs $24.99. It's worth every penny, and all proceeds go to support the work of the Chesterton House ministry.
