    Maceo Musicology Webcast (Maceo's Lovesexy) (June '10 pt 2)

    Gospel





    Gospel music is music that is written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life, as well as (in terms of the varying music styles) to give a Christian alternative to mainstream secular music.

    Like other forms of Christian music the creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of gospel music varies according to culture and social context. Gospel music is composed and performed for many purposes, including aesthetic pleasure, religious or ceremonial purposes, and as an entertainment product for the marketplace. However, a common theme of most gospel music is praise, worship or thanks to God, Christ, or the Holy Spirit.

    Gospel music in general is characterized by dominant vocals (often with strong use of harmony) referencing lyrics of a religious nature, particularly Christian. Subgenres include contemporary gospel, urban contemporary gospel (sometimes referred to as "black gospel"), Southern gospel, and modern gospel music (now more commonly known as praise and worship music or contemporary Christian music). Several forms of gospel music utilize choirs, use piano and/or Hammond organ, drums, bass guitar and, increasingly, electric guitar. In comparison with hymns, which are generally of a statelier measure, the gospel song is expected to have a refrain and often a more syncopated rhythm. (wiki)



    “Any time people sing about what they believe, it elevates it. You don’t have to be a junkie to enjoy The Velvet Underground song “Heroin”. You don’t have to have horns and a pitchfork to enjoy “Sympathy for the Devil” but it does help. The thing is, it’s all music, and when the people believe what they’re singing, it’s just better.” (Bob Dylan)

    an interesting choice, must confess ( no pun intended) that my knowledge starts and stops with the Staples singers and the "Oh Happy Day" tune from way back..
    But I do own and enjoy Ruby Turner's recent gospel CD and love the Blind Boys Of Alalbama, so maybe I'm not as spiritually devoid as I thought : Very Happy

    Talking Christian music. Do you know Can you feel the rhythm of Heaven by Vineyard? It's a really nice funky Christian song. My sister sent me their cd.

    Tahiti, I had already recorded the podcast when you started discussing this last month. I have only heard a live version of Rhythm of Heaven.

    Anyway, would interested in your opinion as not too many posts on the forum with "funky" and "Christian" in the same sentence

    Waw - two interlocking podcasts, echoing a Prince theme. It's ambitious - but Maceo pulled it off! Very Happy

    And this one - again a musical genre I'm not very familiar with. But the voice of EMF radio guided me on a journey through the history of Gospel (with quite a few unexpected twists).
    The start of it: Just voices and rhythm. No brilliant instruments. No clever melody line. What do I focus on then? What makes it interesting? Don't they all sound the same? Ah yes ... the energy and the intensity. There sure is lots of that here!!

    Great one!

    Glad you were able to put up with the twinning of the podcasts Very Happy

    What's fun about the podcast is trying to introduce new music...sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't, but the journey is fun for Maceo afro

    ...and "Stomp" is amongst the funkiest tracks I know, plain and simple 🐘

    Thanks for listening

    The re-issues for the webcast blog continue...

    Mace2theO Webcast #10a - Gospel
    - (Maceo's Lovesexy)



    “Any time people sing about what they believe, it elevates it. You don’t have to be a junkie to
    enjoy The Velvet Underground song “Heroin”. You don’t have to have
    horns and a pitchfork to enjoy “Sympathy for the Devil” but it does
    help. The thing is, it’s all music, and when the people believe what
    they’re singing, it’s just better.”

    (Bob Dylan)

    1. Amazing Grace - Mahalia Jackson
    The Queen of Gospel performs what is probably the most famous spiritual,
    which has been referred to as the African American national anthem. And
    it was written by a Brit from Wapping.

    2. Amen - The Soul Stirrers
    The Soul Stirres have been around for quite a while, and peaked in fame
    when a then unknown Sam Cooke was the lead singer. Their version of the
    classic covers several styles in

    3. How I Got Over- Aretha Franklin
    Recorded live at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church, los Angeles in
    1972, the album this track is from - 'Amazing Grace' - is the biggest
    selling album of Aretha's entire fifty year recording career. Betcha
    didn't know that. I didn't.

    4. Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus - Beverly Crawford
    A bit of a church stomp from this live recording of the Andraé Crouch penned classic

    5. Oh Happy Day The Edwin Hawkins Singers
    "Oh Happy Day" is a 1967 gospel music arrangement of an 18th century
    hymn, recorded live in church. Featuring Dorothy Morrison on lead
    vocals, it was the first "cross over" hymn. It went into the US Top 5
    and won a Grammy.

    6. Love Train - Holmes Brothers w/ Joan Osborne
    The Holmes Brothers are a vocal and instrumental trio who have recorded
    with folks like Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel and Willie Nelson. Here,
    Joan Osborne sings and produces their cover of the O'Jays classic.

    7. Spread Love - Take 6
    Take 6 is an American a cappella gospel music sextet who has recorded
    with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Don Henley. Love this song. Funky
    with nothing but voices.

    8. Yeah - Yolanda Adams
    Yolanda was crowned by Billboard as the #1 Gospel artist of the 90's,
    and this little pop jam shows why. It was written by Mary Mary, who also
    performed badkground vocals.

    9. It`s Love King`s X
    King's X is an American hard rock band whose lyrics about struggles with
    religion and self-acceptance led to them being labeled a Christian
    band, which the band opposed (sorry fellas). They were managed and
    produced by Sam Taylor from ZZ Top's production company, who helped
    bring them into the rock world, where this song became their biggest
    mainstream hit.

    10. Stomp (Maceo's Remix) - God's Property
    Funk-Gospel. P-Funk in the Church. No other way to describe this Kirk
    Frankin produced 1995 hit by the choir. The strength and success of the
    song made the album the highest charting gospel album ever on the US
    charts. Prince has covered this song in concert, but it often confused
    by the Brothers Johnson song with the same name.

    11. I'll Take You There - The Staple Singers
    Mavis, Cleotha, Yvonne and Pops had a #1 hit with this in 1972. The
    musicians are the famed Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and the Memphis
    Horns.

    12. Goin' Up Yonder - Tramaine Hawkins & the Walter Hawkins singers
    Ex-wife of Pastor Walter Hawkins (brother of Edwin), Tramaine has had a
    long career in both gospel and pop music. She was a back up singer for
    Sly and the Family Stone, part of the soul group 'The Honey Cones'
    ("Want Ads") and was part of the Edwin Hawkins Singers on 'Oh Happy
    Day'. This is the full version of her performing his classic hit,
    recorded live in church.
