The quality of the musical expressions of Wole Oni’s piano playing, sizzling effect of the flute, the acoustic steel / nylon and electric guitar creates a delightful cohesiveness, and the deliberate inclusion of the percussions adds a surround width to ‘Cover Me Lord’, while the depth is considered as pioneering to this musical experience.
