02. Something Blue – Bourbon Street – 29 second spot
Thanks Marty. Today we’re going to hear a big band play a favorite hymn.
You’ve heard of praise music and Christian rock. Jubilation Jazz plays Christian Big Band. They’ve got a big sound and a great message and people love their music wherever they go.
There is no doubt that they are evangelizing for Christ. But I think they are evangelizing for Big Band Music. Joseph Curtis, who plays in the band, took it a step further and said they are evangelizing for jazz. He said, “Most of the audience never goes to a jazz concert.” So, yay for jazz and yay for Jesus and thanks to Jubilation Jazz for bringing it all together.
“How Great Thou Art” was my father’s favorite hymn and I played it for him at my mother’s funeral. At his funeral I played a song, “I Will Follow You” that he and I cowrote during the last week of his life. I’ll include a link to the song at sbblues.com as a kind of bonus track for From The Archives Of Something Blue.
Ok now, here’s Jubilation Jazz recorded in September of 2018 at KASU Bluesday Tuesday in Newport, playing my father’s favorite hymn, “How Great Thou Art”.
And that’s Jubilation Jazz playing “How Great Thou Art” at KASU Bluesday Tuesday. Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, to hear LowDown Brass Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Dumpstaphunk.
Hear last week’s show, Art, here.
