"Sacred Blue: Jazz Goes to Church in the 1960s"

3 posts in this topic

For the Easter weekend, a wide-ranging survey of 1960s sacred jazz, with Duke Ellington, Mary Lou Williams, Ed Summerlin, Paul Horn and Lalo Schifrin, Vince Guaraldi, Joe Masters, Herbie Hancock, and even a humorous take on the jazz-mass trend from Al Jazzbo Collins. Much more on the program's website page, including a clip of Ellington's first sacred concert, performed at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in September 1965:

Another interesting specialized sub-genre; looking forward to hearing this. Glad to see that "Hear, O Israel" with Herbie Hancock was included.

Great article, and set of resource links too. Seeing this list: Sacred Jazz Discography, I'm of course wondering what titles folks here can recommend on their artistic merits, particularly some of the lesser known ones beyond the Ellingtons.
