Editorial Reviews

Celebrated Jazz clarinetist, Don Byron, makes his gospel debut with an album inspired by gospel legends, Thomas A. Dorsey and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Acclaimed as much for his restless creativity as for his unsurpassed virtuosity as a player, Byron has presented a multitude of projects at major music festivals around the world, most recently in Vienna, San Francisco, Hong Kong, London, New York, and Monterey. Love, Peace, And Soul includes vocals from a host of guest artists including D.K. Dyson & Dean Bowman, and features guitar from Living Colour's Vernon Reid.

By Case Quarter VINE VOICE on June 13, 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
according to the linear notes written by don byron, the inception of this project grew out of a course byron was teaching at suny, in albany. given a hand-out of a list of music moguls of the 20th century from which to choose for a paper, the popular choice of his students was grammy winner and rock and roll hall of famer, clive davis, while the least chosen was thomas dorsey.

byron's mission became one of furthering exposure to gospel, delineating from european influenced church music the genre as an african american musical form enriched by dorsey's decision as a composer to use and keep the blues in gospel music as integral to the african american religious identity. byron does this by taking gospel songs, the majority of them written by thomas a dorsey, and setting them to jazz arrangements in a quintet setting. by including sister rosetta tharpe also as inspiration, byron takes gospel even further; tharpe started performing in 1938, singing some of dorsey's songs, accompanying herself on guitar easily mixing religious music with popular music. listening to tharpe, you'll quickly hear how she fits into several categories at once, gospel, blues, rhythm and blues; bryon calls her one of the original rock artists, inspiring everyone from little richard,`the architect of rock and roll' (byron gives dorsey the title `the architect of funk'), to jimi hendrix and johnny cash.

dk dyson as lead vocalist, interacts with byron's jazz horn improvisations. dyson has her own style and does not imitate sister rosetta tharpe. the setting in which she sings on the heavily blues and r & b influenced sections, space she shares with guitar and bass, has the atmospheric quality of sessions by cassandra wilson and diane reeves.

Don Byron records are always interesting. In this case is a journey to the roots of jazz. To be more clear, is a reconsideration of gospel music in the music today. Is interesting see how spirituals life toay in other kind of music. Is not excellent but very interestig. The group is great but the production is not super, very simple. Is amazing to see that in the las year many jazz artist come back to gospel, or spiritual meaning of jazz. At the end is a glorious homenage to A. Thomas Dorsey and all his time. Is nor a a classical gospel album. Is how the gospel live today. In any case Don Byron is great, intelligent,with historical bases and probably the best clarinetist today.His performance is great and the musician too, includes Vernon Reid in one song, DK Dyson have a real good voice and the rest of the musician are ok, You must hear this CD in any case could be a surprise .

I was disappointed with this music. It has great musicians on it and there is the promise of jazz influenced gospel music here. But if you are looking for an easy listen, this might not be it. To my ears, several tracks were unsettling due to the sax and clarinet work. These solos and accompaniment are really "out" and not in keeping with any gospel I've ever heard. If you like that kind of playing you will like this CD. The best song is Sham Time, which is great.
