LEBANON, Ohio — The UMO JA Men's Chorus from Warren Correctional Institution recently released its third album, "Extend a Hand," a 19-track recording written exclusively by the inmates.

The album, which was released a month before the World Choir Games came to Cincinnati, was recorded within the walls of the correctional institution, which meant the acoustics were far from reasonable.
