Sorry for the late posting today. I’m running a bit slow in general after two nights out to celebrate my birthday.
Came across this trailer recently for Rejoice and Shout, a history of Gospel music. It features interviews with such legends as Smokey Robinson, Mavis Staples and the Staple Singers, Mahalia Jackson, Clara Ward, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Andrae Crouch, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and many more. The film is directed by Don McGlynn who has helmed more than a dozen music documentaries on subjects such as jazz saxophonist Art Pepper, Howlin’ Wolf, Glen Miller and songwriter Harold Arlen. The trailer looks brilliant and I hope it gets a release date in Ireland soon.
