It was 1958 at the Newport Jazz Festival, and the announcer said it all: "Ladies and gentlemen, it is Sunday, and it is time for the World's Greatest Gospel Singer, Miss Mahalia Jackson." And, with that all-too-appropriate introduction, Jackson broke into a stirring rendition of "An Evening Prayer" that set the tone for a classic performance. Over the course of her 45-minute set, she performed pop-tinged numbers ("Didn't It Rain"), a few trad tunes ("I'm Going to Live the Life I Sing About in My Song"), and songs immersed with soul ("Keep Your Hand on the Plow"). On all of these numbers, Jackson's voice rang loud and clear, backed simply by piano and organ. Recorded at a time when her longtime fans were questioning her increasing fame and popularity, the "Queen of Gospel" proved shiningly, once again, that she still knew how to use her God-given gift of voice. --Jason Verlinde, Editorial Reviews

 

Jackson was at the peak of her career, and she gave a stunning performance at this show, lifting such songs as "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands," "Lord's Prayer," "Evening Prayer," "I'm on My Way," "Walk over God's Heaven" and "His Eye is on the Sparrow" to glorious heights. It's not only one of the great live gospel albums, it's simply one of the great gospel albums. ---Leo Stanley, AllMusic Review

Silent Night is a collection of Christmas music by Mahalia Jackson. Liner notes state: "The feeling of participation which enfolds the listener is one of the collection's most satisfying rewards. Each person who lets himself be swept up in the surge of Mahalia's singing will find himself contemplating anew the time, the atmosphere, the miracle of Christmas. Mahalia Jackson, one of the finest artists in the world today, gifted conductor Johnny Williams, the orchestra and chorus return this music to its original significance and make it once again the music of joy that it is." --- recordvision.com

This is not the greatest technical recording nor is the band and backing singers the greatest ... but what it lacks otherwise makes up for with Mahalia's vocals and the incredible possibilities she unleases within the listener fortunate enough to witness these powerful addressings and testaments to the transendance of Life and Love for God . These 'Appolo' sessions mark the true beggining of the influence of Thomas Dorsey's music and Mahalia's interpretation towards a new/old way of expression through the 'gospel' that had far reaching implications for the direction of all black inspired music in America . Mahalia Jackson's legend is born with these and their fire and truth can be felt even in this most troubled of times. --- miklbro, amazon.com

Widely regarded as one of Ellington's finest works, this extended piece is intended as--in the Duke's words--"a tone parallel to the history of the American Negro." Originally premiered in Carnegie Hall in 1943, it is a work of symphonic complexity and astonishing range and appeal. The performance on this Collector's Edition disc consists of two major parts of the complete piece, "Work Song" and "Come Sunday." Each of these is further divided into six parts, through which the themes are stated, developed, restated, and set in dialogue with other voices.

The distinguishing mark, however, is the presence of Mahalia Jackson. Her rich, deeply soulful delivery on "Come Sunday" and the finale (in which Jackson sings the 23rd Psalm) give the piece the stirring immediacy that its subject matter demands. Jackson's performance and the elegant, dramatic interpretations of the Orchestra provide irrefutable evidence of the breadth and ambition of the Duke's compositional imagination.

Mahalia Jackson reigned as a pioneer interpreter of gospel music whose fervent contralto was one of the great voices of this century. Both gospel and rhythm & blues had their roots in the Sanctified church, but whereas blues and R&B departed on secular paths that led to rock and roll, gospel stayed the spiritual course. Nonetheless, the influence of gospel on R&B and rock and roll, especially through such force-of-nature voices as Jackson’s, is inescapable. Little Richard has cited Jackson as an inspiration, calling her “the true queen of spiritual singers.”

In Jackson’s own words, “Rock and roll was stolen out of the sanctified church!” Certainly, in the unleashed frenzy of the “spirit feel” style of gospel epitomized by such singers as Mahalia Jackson, Marion Williams and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, one can hear the rousing roots of rock and roll. One of Jackson’s accompanists was keyboardist Billy Preston, who went on to great fame as a rock and R&B star. But religious passion was paramount in Jackson’s life, and no sacred-to-secular transformation would mark her career as it did so many others. “Her voice is a heartfelt express of all that is most human about us—our fears, our faith, our hope for salvation,” David Ritz wrote in his liner notes for Mahalia Jackson: 16 Most Requested Songs. “Hope is the hallmark of Mahalia Jackson and the gospel tradition she embodies.”

Jackson was born in New Orleans in 1911. A debut Baptist, she was nonetheless influenced by Bessie Smith and the rhythm & blues she heard all around her. She carried the rich musical heritage of her native city with her when she moved to Chicago in 1927. Jackson labored as a domestic but soon found abundant work as a soloist at churches and funerals throughout Chicago. After performing with the Prince Johnson singers, she first recorded as a soloist in the mid-Thirties. She spent five years touring with composer Thomas A. Dorsey, singing at gospel tents and churches. Jackson recorded for Decca in 1937 and for Apollo from 1946-1954. She then moved to Columbia Records, where she achieved broad recognition as a singer of spirituals. She also lent her powerful voice and imprimatur to the Civil Rights movement of the Fifties and Sixties.

Singing in a grainy, full-throated soprano that employed slurs and blue notes, Jackson brought a heightened drama and syncopated bounce to her readings of such gospel classics as “Move On Up a Little Higher,” “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” (a Top 100 pop single) and “How I Got Over.” She sang for Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, performing at the latter’s inaugural. A favorite of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jackson sang at his request immediately before his “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington in August 1963. Jackson recorded for Columbia from 1954 until 1967. She died of heart failure outside Chicago in 1972.

Mahalia Jackson is often lauded as the greatest gospel singer of all time; but, this collection proves that even that high praise understates her gift. She was undoubtedly one of the finest recording artists of any genre and this anthology explores the full range of her abilities from raw gospel (Elijah Rock), to soaring anthems (Rock of Ages) and quaint folk ballads (It Don't Cost Very Much) - all of them sung with the perfect degree of power or restraint, rhythm or melody. If you only own one Mahalia Jackson collection, this is the one to buy. ---Christopher Hutson, amazon.com
