Chances are, if you’re a middle Tennessee local and love jazz music, you’ve probably seen, or at least heard of, The Lund McVey Group. The Christian jazz/fusion outfit’s self-titled full-length studio album is a robust follow-up to their 2010 release “Live at the Walnut House”, and features 10 original songs composed by Lund, who also performs on electric guitar. Lund, a Middle Tennessee State University graduate and adjunct professor, is also an ordained pastor and is passionate about connecting the music to the Word of God, as heard throughout the album.

The rest of the group includes MTSU alumnus Jason McVey (alto saxophone), Adam Bond (electric/upright bass), Shonna Lund (vocals) and Jerry Steinhilber (drums)
