7212Not a resurrection, but a rebirth.

The Numero Group’s 2006 release “Good God! A Gospel Funk Hymnal” examined what seemed to be a conundrum: gospel singers performing pious gospel songs, and devoutly, but doing so amid hot, sweaty, earthy sounds drunk on the same moonshine downed by any blues singer thumbing his way up north from the Mississippi delta. If the central premise was to grapple with a ‘funky’ trend in gospel, forgive us for staring perhaps a bit too intently at the collision of sacred and profane we thought we saw on those LPs and 45s. This music was always sacred, and decidedly so.

Four years later, Numero returns with not quite a New Testament, rather a re-examination of a weighty tome. “Born Again Funk” lends new ears to a joyful strain of American composers and performers unafraid of expressing their devotion with both inspiration and invention. They were faithful to a spirit, not to an ordained sound.

Barrett & the Youth For Christ Choir, Ada Richards, Gospel Comforters, Golden Echoes, Lucy ‘Sister Soul’ Rodgers, Gospel Soul Revivals, Brother Samuel Cheatham, Victory Travelers, Jordan Travelers, Inspirational Gospel Singers, Sacred Four, Andrew Wartts & the Gospel Storytellers, Holy Disciples of Chicago, Ill., Sensational Five Singing Sons, Little Chris & the Righteous Singers, Sensational Five, Chicago Travelers, James Austin & the St. Luke COGIC Youth Choir.

“Powerful and preachy music that marries the Lord’s message with the Devil’s grooves, this stuff could pack pews seven days a week.” Playboy
