Mahalia Jackson's deep soulfulness, the passion of her Christian conviction and a belief in the power of her music led her to breakthrough in the U.S. where she appeared at Carnegie Hall and took her to Europe where she performed at the Vatican. It did not, however, though many had wished it so, lead her to jazz, blues and rock ’n’ roll. The public’s wide acceptance of her music proved her right in pursuing her own spiritual path first and foremost, although some critical listeners claimed to have spotted commercial undertones in her inimitable, highly expressive singing.

This live recording from the Newport Festival from 1958 cannot be accused of having been made for commercial reasons because it by no means reflects the common cliches of gospel singing. There is no rhythm group, no chorus and no clapping of hands so no sound is left unheard here. Mahalia’s soft, raucous voice retains its volume and warmth in moments of drama as well as in whispered passages. In this performance she is accompanied only by a piano or occasionally a Hammond organ with a cloud of chords. This is a pure, authentic musical experience that is free of style and trends, making it all the more meaningful and rare all these years later. Hear it in all its sonic glory here on this 180g Import LP!
