New Sounds of Gospel Trombone

Thursday, November 14, 2013

For this New Sounds program, dig into the instrumental gospel tradition, specifically, the one centered around the trombone.  It is prominent in some churches, such as the United House of Prayer for all People in Harlem, and the shout-gospel choir (with brass band), the McCollough Sons of Thunder.  Listen to their roof-raising performance, recorded at the World Festival of Sacred Music from May of 2001 - a New Sounds Live event.  Led by Elder Babb, the 17 trombones, trumpet, percussion, brought down the house at Merkin Hall, with the dancing, singing and clapping in the aisles.

Joyful Transmissions

Sunday, October 20, 2013

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; and more!
