The Gospel Spirit

The Gospel Spirit | WNMC Music | Scoop.it

Back in this post, we featured a carefully selected playlist of songs best suited for Sunday mornings, when godless ingrates like me are busy reading the Times and sipping artisinal coffee. . . . As we pointed out a couple of years ago, that playlist was designed to accompany Arts and Leisure, not necessarily to instill a sense of religious fervor in the faithful. No, I saved those tunes for this post – a sampling of songs by a few of our favorite gospel artists. So put down the paper, crank up the laptop, get your ass off the couch and spread some joy… even if the congregation amounts to a fairly jaded spousal unit and a few nervous pets.

INTERVIEW/PROFILE: Jazz Musician of the Day: Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis

INTERVIEW/PROFILE: Jazz Musician of the Day: Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis | WNMC Music | Scoop.it

All About Jazz is celebrating Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis' birthday today! Eddie Lockjaw Davis was one musician who provided a link from the big band era through to the soul jazz phenomenon of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Davis developed one of the most unmistakable tenor sax sounds in post war jazz--the Texas tenor sound, very appropriate for a man born on Texas Independence Day (but, inappropriately enough in New York City).

Old music: Sonny and Terry - People Get Ready

Terry, a harmonica player from Greensboro, Georgia, hooked up with McGhee – ex-member of the fabled Rabbit Foot Minstrels – in the 1940s; famously, towards the end of a long and fruitful partnership that saw them surf different trends, becoming stars of the 60s blues revival, they couldn't stand the sight of each other. (Or rather, each other's presence; Terry injured his eyes in childhood and was blind by the age of 16.)
