A thoughtful blog about gospel music.
Hello. Some time ago I wrote asking about sacred jazz. You were helpful. Right after that, on 12/12, my local radio station had a show on Jazz goes to Church. Their website posts playlist. This is what they had for that evening. Eric Jackson is a great jazz announcer with a great show. You can hear him at wgbh.com. (No I don't work for wgbh!)

Hey, Dr. M.Thanks, this is great. I'll post soon about another cool discovery: The Jazz Nativity. I attended one a couple of weeks ago, and they really swung! It was great (the three wise men were a trumpet player, a tap dancer and a Latin percussionist). Swing a new song!
