The Inheritors

"I have nothing against contemporary gospel musicians, with their suave choral arrangements and eclecticism. They are the inheritors. But there is no thrill like listening to those who invented the language."

--Margo Jefferson, in "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing: Soaring Hallelujahs of the Original Gospel Music," The New York Times, August 25, 2005
