Product Description

Morris Robinson , His presentation of "Going Home" was unbelieveable. What an amazing natural talent. His presence is towering and his singing is inspired. If you like gospel music this new CD is a must have!!

Amazon.com

Today's gospel is more eclectic than ever before. While remaining true to the spiritual and historical roots, gospel artists welcome different styles and varieties to keep things interesting. But Morris Robinson's Going Home has to be a first: gospel and opera? Sure, there's a dramatic flair to both, but the marriage of these two distinctive sounds comes across as quite fresh. Pulling a song list from many traditional gospel songs, bassist extraordinaire Robinson commands attention with his vocal presence. Song arrangements will also pique your interest, from the soft jazzy opener "Walk With Me" to "Lord, I Want to Be a Christian" and "Go Tell It on the Mountain," thanks to the great studio work from Cyrus Chestnut (piano), Lionel Loueke, and Jonathan DuBose (guitars). With a change of gears, "Go Down Moses" sounds more like something from a soundtrack or opera, thanks to the classy Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Big Mo shows he also can change styles, and he relaxes the operatic voice on "Sister Mary" and "Were You There?" Perhaps the most brilliant fireworks come on the title track, as Robinson and the Royal Philharmonic weave their sounds into a powerful sonic climax that should shake any foundation. And to add to the variety, Robinson quickly follows with the old-time gospel testimonial "His Eye Is On the Sparrow," complemented nicely by Joseph Joubert on the keys and sung by Robinson with the same power and emotion he called upon when singing it at his mother's funeral. An amazing piece of work, Robinson's Going Home is a knockout punch. --Michael Lyttle

His great, deep, manly voice is just perfect.
JoJo
I'm sure that Mr.Robinson will be VERY well known in Opera circles in the coming years and I can't wait to hear what he will be singing next!
Sylvan Green
His early work was recorded with minimalist accompaniment.

I heard this amazing voice and person on NPR's "All Things Considered" in an interview. I was driving to a relative's house to seek safer surroundings and electricity after a tornado. I left my house stressed and tense. Hearing Morris Robinson's interview and the music clips absolutely soothed my soul. Not even an hour after I reached electricity and internet service, I ordered the cd. I received it yesterday. After a day of volunteering at a coworkers severly damaged house, I came home, listened, and my soul was soothed once again. Beautiful voice, moving spirit, wonderful new arrangements on traditional spirituals. Highly recommended.

I had the pleasure of hearing Rigoletto, where the Sparafucile fell ill and was replaced by Morris Robinson. He sang the entire role, plainclothed and from the orchestral pit. The voice BOOMED over everything and had a richness unlike anything I have heard in person (besides in the voice of Ewa Podles).

A few months later, my friends and I were still raving about how his voice had ripped the paint off the theater walls. SO a friend took took me to the Cincinnati May Festival to see his Osmin. In a significantly larger hall the same effect was present. From top to bottom, Morris' voice is a formidable instrument with no apparent weaknesses. In this music, which was created initially to bring joy to those hearing it, his voice is perfectly suited. I'd encourage anyone to purchase this album and if given the opportunity, SEE THIS SINGER IN PERSON.

We were searching YouTube for singers of "Goin' Home" when we came across Morris Robinson. He was singing at the Crystal Cathedral and his performance of this song was very nice. His voice was rich and full, his timing in delivering the song was well executed. We were so excited to find his CD featuring the very song we loved. But, we were so disappointed. That one song is the only one we enjoyed hearing of those on the CD. The others feature accompaniment that nearly drowns out his voice. No one buys a CD like this to hear a full orchestra and loud choir; you buy it to hear the man's voice. The songs are not "easy listening." They are an intrusion. We put the DC away and rely on our Paul Robeson CD for the sounds we desired.

Morris Robinson's voice is extraordinary!! If you love Bass Opera voices then this will give you a thrill. Morris sings the Gospel as if it's coming out of the marrow of his bones, He feels every note. He's fairly new to Opera and had a football background believe it or not! I'm sure that Mr.Robinson will be VERY well known in Opera circles in the coming years and I can't wait to hear what he will be singing next! He's a big man with a big voice, but, oh, the subtlety and range this man has will knock your socks off! Think Sam Ramey with a younger timbre.

Morris robinson has such potential. If you like powerful bass singing, you cannot help but find this man compelling. You could only write a negative review if you felt that no artist ever evolves, improves, or changes. Let's consider Paul Robeson- like Robinson, he was a big, commanding presence; football player in college (All American Rutgers),a singing talent forged more in the church than in a musical conservatory. His early work was recorded with minimalist accompaniment. I am persuaded that much of the glitzy background we hear nowadays is done to cover up deficiencies in the performer's voice. Robinson and Robeson both shine with instrumental support that is just barely above acapella.
While I doubt that most artists read these reviews of themselves, I would have one hope for Morris Robinson: Stick to the lower registers and don't let some studio twit try to turn you into a baritone. You can retain feeling, control and power in 'deep water', which is a rare talent. Josh Groban can do what most baritones cannot do, yet some of his recent recordings suggest someone wants him to become just another tenor.

Morris Robinson's voice is swoon-worthy: so rich, resonant and true that this listener got cold chills listening to it for the first time. His pitch is always bang-on, he possesses an awesome breadth of expression and dynamics, and it is with regret that one hears the last note end. This CD was a gift from a friend, and I cannot WAIT to hear Mr. Robinson's operatic roles. That said, this collection of spirituals and gospel songs is superb. The arrangements vary from simple to a bit over-the-top, but they are all enjoyable, and with accompanying musicians like Cyrus Chestnut, who could go wrong? Highly recommended for lovers of this music and of beautiful male singing.

I enjoyed this recording. Most of these spirituals are very familiar, but Mr. Robinson takes an approach to them that adds a new element to each. Operatically trained, he takes a jazz-influenced approach to many of the songs on this album. The accompaniment is usually guitar and organ. I enjoyed this, as I have not heard spirituals approached in this way. The other songs are performed in an orchestral setting. Mr. Robinson brings a strong bass voice to these songs and accentuates the emotional content very well. Overall, I enjoyed this recording as it was a nice surprise.
