Wycliffe Gordon, The Garden City Gospel Choir - In The Cross download album
Trombonist Wycliffe Gordon bridged the gap between gospel and jazz five years ago with The Gospel Truth. For In the Cross, he takes it a step further by adding an 11-voice choir on several of the tracks played by his sextet. The pairing adds to the sound, evoking both Donald Byrd’s A New Perspective and the sanctified moments of Charles Mingus, especially when Gordon gets ahold of his plunger mute. In particular, his solo on I Want Jesus to Walk With Me sounds like a human voice speaking in tongues. Of the 12 tracks, Gordon wrote or cowrote four, with the rest drawing heavily on traditional.
