DVD - REJOICE & SHOUT
by Don McGlynn
Traces the evolution of gospel: the spirituals and early hymns, harmony-based quartets, the integration of blues and swing, the emergence of soul, and the blending of rap and hip-hop elements. Gospel walked in step with the story of African-American culture - from slavery to civil rights and empowerment. This connects the dual histories. Rare footage of Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Dixie Hummingbirds, more. Interviews with Marie Knight, Ira Tucker Sr., Mavis Staples, academics, others. Deftly explores how the style became more businesslike and grew to incorporate things like coordinated dance moves and electric guitars that many considered profane. A strong narrative thread pulls it all together, giving a compelling view of one of America's great, neglected artforms. 115 min.
