New York, NY (Top40 Charts / ACSM, Inc.) Stellar Award winner, Smooth Jazz and Dove Award nominated Saxophonist Angella Christie, lands coveted rankings on two Billboard Charts - Gospel and Contemporary Jazz. "Intimate Conversations," Christie's long-awaited new release and ninth album captures her posing as a mesmerizing musical conversationalist bringing a fresh innovative approach to well-known Gospel and Christian tunes; which was recorded on her own label - ACSM, Inc.

The album strikes familiar chords in the heart of listeners, offering different audiences a seat as Christie seamlessly merges generations and genres through songs like, "Break Every Chain," which explodes melodiously with power as it weaves through various rhythmic styles of expression such as rock, fusion, smooth jazz and gospel as Angella leaves no stone unturned in this rendition. "Alpha & Omega," stands alone as a ballad of shear expression of worship with an acoustic piano and sax, while "I Can Only Imagine," gives you that easy listening neo soul feel, like a generous plate of comfort food on a Sunday afternoon. "Draw Me Close Medley," raptures ones' soul into a place of blissful intimacy, as pure joy oozes from popular African worship tunes - "IGWE" and "K'abio Osi."

"Intimate Conversations," will touch the depth of your spirit with impactful messages lodged deep in the melodies of every song. The tracks are smooth; yet possess a continual elevating terrain of diverse musical ambiance. Angella introduces you to a new spiritual landscape with every note as she plays with an urbane but deliberate purpose that permeates the soul as each familiar song reawakens during her impressive instrumental presentation.

Christie is a pioneer in the format of Instrumental Gospel music, which has the infusion of Gospel, Pop, Urban, and Jazz styling expressions. Graduating from Houston Baptist University, she began touring the states with a $300 saxophone purchased from a pawnshop. In the 1980's, Christie engineered the instrumental gospel sound that rivals some of the best alto players articulating in ranges from subtone lows to altissimo highs. Her signature sound has segued into a popular genre, sometimes referred to as GospelJazz.

Known for her shoeless performances, Christie passionately pulls audiences into a natural inclination of Praise & Worship. This response has been consistent throughout the United States, Japan, Uganda, South Africa, Nigeria, Germany, London, Bermuda and the Caribbeans. Consequently, her gravity defying-faith has made her the first internationally acclaimed female gospel saxophonist world-wide. Her life-time journey and first hand experiences have also transformed her into an effective diverse speaker of hope, singleness, entrepreneurship and Christ-like living.

Previously, Christie released, "Eternity" and "Hymn & I" on AIR Records and in 2004, launched ACSM, Inc. releasing "Draw the Line" and "The Breath of Life."

"Intimate Conversations," is available on compact disc and digital album distributed to ‎mainstream physical retailers and‎ to worldwide digital outlets by ADA (a Warner Music Group company) in association with GoDigiPath, LLC. Provident Distribution (a Sony Music Entertainment company) in association with Fair Trade Services and GoDigiPath, LLC provides the CBA worldwide physical retail distribution.
