Notes / Reviews
African American religious music, born of oppression and tempered by resistance, profoundly influences almost every other modern genre: jazz, blues, rock and even country. On this 1995 release, this peerless ensemble revisits traditional African American religious music with reverence and passion, and adds their own boldly original explorations of what 'sacred' means today. No More Auction Block and Jordan River testify to faith and fortitude during centuries of slavery, whereas Mystic Oceans and Would You Harbor Me expand and clarify modern notions of sanctity and right action. Together, these songs create a deeply personal yet evocative journey, delving into the mists of distant memory for contemporary relevance.
