Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With songs of pain, protest, hope and humor, Ella's been educating children (and their parents) since the '50s-and making great albums like this 1960 Folkways recording. She celebrates African-American musical heritage with Chicago's Goodwill Spiritual Choir, singing revival songs ( Run and Help Us Tell ); gospel songs ( Old Time Religion ); Maya Angelou's That's All Right Julie , and more. Every bit as inspirational today.

Amazon.com

Best known for her recordings of children's music, here Ella Jenkins teams with the Goodwill Spiritual Choir of Monumental Baptist Church. A rarity, this 1960s-era Chicago choir (composed of older children and adults) sang both for worship and the general public, doing so with soulful clarity and articulation. Jenkins's precise alto leads the choir; she also arranges many of the traditional religious and work songs in a skillful blend of old-school style and crisp finesse. Poet Maya Angelou contributes to this project with arrangements of the singsong "That's All Right Julie" and "Who Is All Here" (recognized as a version of the skip-rope chant "Not last night, but the night before / Twenty-four robbers came a-knockin' at my door"). From "Cotton-Eyed Joe" to a shining a cappella choral arrangement of "Did You Feed My Cow?" and the stellar harmonies of "Rockin' Jerusalem," African American Folk Rhythms explores essential and vibrant aspects of black America. --Paige La Grone
