My thoughts on "Worthy To Be Praised"...This song starts with a beautiful intro, that reminds one of being down by the border or possibly Mexico... very inviting. The acoustic lead licks escort the listener into the opening lyrics and is just right. The lead vocals are warm and easy to follow. There is no doubt that this is a simple song of praise and adoration... The music swings back and forth, and the harmony on the chorus adds a nice emphasis and is delightful to the ears. The chorus leads into a short saxophone solo which is perfect for this song - it adds another dimension to this song and makes the journey from beginning to the end a soulful experience. Great touch. This song is pure fun from beginning to end and the kind of song that makes one want to hum along with, or start singing to. Simple - yet very uplifting and entertaining. I don't hear any real weak spots, other than a little country piano, or electric piano would have been another flavor to add to this song's mix. That being said, I enjoyed this song and think it's "ear candy"; especially if you're a believer and love to praise God. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful song with everyone!

Joyful praise anthem with Spanish flair and 50's flavor delivered flawlesslyThis is another highly skilled performance by Kenny and his sensational band. From the slick Spanish-style guitar intro to the saxophone fill at the end, the band's performance is flawless, backing Kenny's heartfelt and joyful words of praise for the Alpha and Omega, Who is worthy indeed. The castanet-and-conga flavored percussion throughout the song and the strong drumming give it even more of a Spanish flavor, while the chord progression is reminiscent of joyful and innocent 1950's rock and roll. The bass line is sophisticated and carried off masterfully. The Floyd Cramer-like touches on the piano, and the brilliant saxophone work that is never in the way only add to the listening pleasure. The producer is excellent, judging from the performances of the band members and the perfect balance of the mix. I would love to worship in a church that uses this tune for congregational singing!
