Gospel Players in General Discussion Posted August 13, 2015 [quote name='tobiewharton' timestamp='1438982907' post='2839260'] Bubinga5 - I was thinking the same with Abe Laboriel. Will check out these guys. Do you play yourself? The guys who are standing out for me at the moment are Justin Raines (Israel Houghton, amongst others) and Maurice Fitzgerald (Kurt Carr, amongst others). [/quote] Wouldn't say Abe Laboriel is particularly pegged as a gospel player, esp given his broad session rep and smooth jazz output. However he has done a fair bit of gospel playing with the likes of Andre Crouch, Ron Kenoly and Alvin Slaughter. Must say that I love all his playing but mostly listen to his first two solo albums and his stuff with Koinonia.
