This collection of classic gospel songs, hymns, and seasonal songs is Mark's letter of love and deep admiration to black gospel music. "There is something about the marriage of syncopation, jazz harmonies, improvised vocal lines, and unfettered joy," he writes in the foreword, "that speaks to my soul. Whether it's a hip groove, a full-on hallelujah, or a mournful spiritual, it delights my musical senses and resonates with my spirit." These arrangements are sure to delight and resonate with listeners as well.
