These math problems are getting harder in the comments section (LOL) Seriously, there is nothing more soothing to my soul than listening to Sister Mahalia sing. God, that woman was blessed with a gift directly from the heavens. It’s interesting because my aunt and her husband are both “non-religious” people, but are products of very religious families. Yet, they say that their way of having church is to turn on Mahalia or the old quartets like the Blind Boys, and let the music wash over their spirits. I believe as Emily Dickinson does; that church can be anywhere. “Some keep the Sabbath going to Church I keep it staying at Home With a Bobolink for a Chorister And an Orchard for a Dome. ” Right now, on this Monday Afternoon, I am having church. Stay blessed and thank you for sharing this gift.

Great Mixtape. This could also be in the COVER section…so what caused you to put it in the classic category vs. cover?

no particular reason. "come sunday" is a classic song and as i started listening to the different versions, it just came to me that this would be a great mixtape. the hardest part was deciding the order and deciding which versions to use—there are many, many others. plus we had featured duke&mahalia before. my goal was to create a great mixtape on a jazz spiritual vibe… that’s it. beyond that, i can’t take credit for what i did (although i do take credit for the sequencing and, oh yeah, i also take credit for the mixing. it’s easy to put the songs back to back, not so easy to make the songs smoothly flow into each other using cross fades and cuts…) but anyway, i used the classic category because "come sunday" epitomizes what a classic is or ought to be, i.e. the best example of a style or genre. enjoy.
