Joyful Transmissions

Music is a powerful fountain of joy. Music is a liberating release from tension, stress and worry. Music can be an ardent transmission of life, an eloquent rebuttal of discouragement. David Garland presents some uplifting, soul-stirring performances, ranging from Jacob Garchik's "Atheist Gospel Trombone Album," to great gospel singer Rance Allen; from the euphoric scat singing of Cab Calloway, to the contemporary vocal tapestries of Julianna Barwick; from Scott Robinson's bluesy bass saxophone performing a Moravian folksong, to the revitalizing fervor of New Orleans' Rebirth Brass Band. And more!
