DOYLE LAWSON & QUICKSILVER, “Light On My Feet, Ready To Fly,” Horizon Records. 11 tracks.

Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver have been alternating secular and gospel albums in recent years.
And 2010 is gospel album time.

“Light On My Feet, Ready To Fly” follows 2008’s “Help Is On The Way” and 2006’s “He Lives In Me” as some of the best bluegrass gospel being recorded today.

Corey Hensley, the group’s guitar player, wrote two songs — the title cut and “The Hammer of Sin” — and sings lead on five.

Through the years, Quicksilver has been a finishing school for bluegrass musicians who have gone on to become stars in their own rights.

The band has been known for its strong harmony since it first hit the bluegrass circuit in 1979. And the current lineup — Lawson, Hensley, Jason Leek, Dale Perry, Josh Swift and Jason Barie — is no exception.

Two a capella numbers are included here — “My Lord’s Gonna Move This Wicked Race” and “Zion Medley (Ship of Zion, Is That The Old Ship of Zion).”

Seven tracks are uptempo numbers and “Zion” is the closest thing to a gospel standard.

“Light On My Feet” is the latest in a long line of strong albums by a great band.
