“Ladies and gentlemen, it is Sunday, and it is time for the World’s Greatest Gospel Singer, Miss Mahalia Jackson” said the festival’s announcer, at Newport 1958

Another brillant album. I still play it sometimes, between dub or house sounds, but I really prefer to listen to it when relaxing in my sofa. Fantastic singer, a gospel queen for many people… In the 30’s, Mahalia Jackson is singing in churches, she is yet a famous singer when she recorded her 1st records. She refused, when Earl Hines the famous pianist offered her to get in is orchestra, to keep involved in religious music !

The same year @ newport festival, lots of important artists were on stage, and  most of the concerts have been recorded : Ray Charles, Miles Davis sextet with Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb are also recorded, but misunderstood.

For those who want to discover more records about her.
