Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The notion of an old-fashioned trombone band might conjure up funny, nostalgic sounds. But the ecstatic, trombone-heavy brass groups captured live on Saints' Paradise play gospel music that will take you higher. These ensembles, known as trombone shout bands, have stylistic connections to New Orleans jazz brass bands and Albert Ayler's spiritually influenced compositions. However, shout bands can usually only be heard in United House of Prayer churches on the East Coast. A typical shout band features husky lead trombone playing backed by a trombone choir, tuba, and percussion. There are variations on this big sound; Washington, D.C.'s Madison's Lively Stones swagger, while the Happyland Band from Newport News, Virginia, have a smoother, more easygoing style. "Sweet!," by Harlem's McCollough Sons of Thunder, is the CD's longest track. It's nearly seven minutes of ever-building, pure joy. --Fred Cisterna

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - try not joining in - you can't do it July 15, 2000
The Amazon editorial description of this album is right on. A few years back, steel guitar gospel was a cross-over hit. Now it is time for trombone gospel bands. The sound is related to the New Orleans brass bands - but is truly unique. The notes provided with the CD give a good introduction both to the United House of Prayer and to the six shout bands included in the anthology. My personal favorite is One Day at a Time and Ease My Troubled Mind although Madison's Lively Stones are delightful if you want a higher energy music.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a gift July 13, 2010
Wow! Got this CD as a cutout at a brick 'n mortar store and it has just blown me away. If you like brass bands, gospel, New Orleans, jazz, or any music that can grab you and pull you in, this is one for you. Inspired music, really a gift from above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal January 8, 2009
This CD is phenomenal. I own about 1000 CDs and after five years, this CD is still in constant heavy rotation. There is something amazing about all those trombones, playing in unison. I am truly speechless in trying to describe the power and greatness of this music. Try this CD with total confidence; these Trombone Shout Bands will not let you down!
