Black Gospel Music is the embodiment, essence, and soul of African Americans. The mysteries of its roots lie in the heart of Antebellum America. From the depths of the slave ships to the dusty farming fields of the south, its roots can be traced back to American Slavery.

It started out somehow as an oppressed emotion. That feeling could not be audibly heard but only observed by a movement, a rock or a sway. Before a moan ever came out, oppression and sorrow gave birth to a truly original music form. Other than Native American music, gospel music (in particular, slave songs and Negro spirituals) is the original form of American folk music. From Negro spirituals to traditional hymns; quartet groups to contemporary gospel music, the indelible sound of Black Gospel Music can be accredited to the descendents of African American Slaves. Even after two hundred years, it is still unsurpassed worldwide and defies description. Its unmistakable power reaches heavenward and is celestial.

I have often been asked in workshops and lectures. "What is Gospel Music?" The word gospel is derived from the Greek word euaggelion which means "good news" and is often defined as spreading the news of Jesus Christ. Gospel music can be imitated and copied; but to effectively deliver gospel music, one must have had a religious experience. For this reason; the descendants of African American slaves, through their religious journey, will always be the heartbeat and soul of black gospel music.

The Harlem GospeLive Revue attempts to provide the audience with a unique revue that orientates new ears, and blesses the true believer, with music of the African American religious experience. From this birth and legacy came, Blues, Jazz, R&B, and Hip Hop, to tell the story of a people. Even Rock and Roll was inspired by gospel.

The contributions of African Americans to the world history of music is unprecedented. African American vocal styles have set the template for others to follow. Black vocal styles are studied and copied worldwide and have become a true American icon setting the tone for the twentieth century.

"For from their souls do they sing…. But not only from their souls… but from the spirit… of the souls of their ancestors"

Jazz, the American Theme Song; The music we know today as jazz arose out of the black experience rooted in the story of slavery in America. All of those musicians who contributed to the early days of jazz, to its formation, were the children or grandchildren of slaves. Whatever it was that enabled jazz to grow has bequeathed a musical gift which has enriched cultures all over the world.

James Lincoln Collier in his excellent article on jazz in the New Grove Dictionary of Jazz (Macmillan, 1996) wrote on the acculturation process that arose from the contact between the cultures of the African slaves brought into contact with the dominant white culture of the US: “...such a process of acculturation is seldom total: characteristically, a form from the new culture is imbued with emotional or functional significance from the old. Thus the black slaves adopted European instruments, musical devices such as the diatonic scale, standard meters, and popular song forms, but they used them to reproduce African effects.”

Jazz today comes in a sometimes bewildering array of colors and flavors, constantly renewing itself and finding new ways of expression. It has also spread across the world in most wonderful ways.

Fascinating examples of the music creating feedback loops for itself are found, like the hip-hop music that grew out of jazz and then started to influence jazz players. Like the way that many jazz players from the US have gone in search of their African musical roots and had their music challenged and changed by their experiences.

Wherever jazz finds itself as a genuine musical expression it changes itself and is changed by the new contexts and traditions that it comes into contact with. The acculturation process is continuous and enriching.
