Album Review

Yeah, Take 6 are a gospel vocal group at heart, but their fusion of gospel with street corner doo wop, jazzy African rhythms, and — on their recent albums — sparse but refreshing and inventive instrumentation makes them something else again, until it hardly matters if the music is secular or sacred. Take 6 simply make joyous music, so joyous that things like genre cease to matter. One, issued by Shanachie Records, is Take 6 once again in wonderful, glorious flight, featuring gorgeous and perfectly layered call-and-response vocals and interjections on tracks like "Down Here I've Done My Best," "One," and "Noah," making this set yet another testament in the group's already impressive catalog.

Customer Reviews

One Amazing piece of artistry

I own several Take 6 CDs, but this one might just take over the top spot. Noah is killer, Alleluia is just beautiful. On most CDs you'll like the majority of songs, but on this CD each song is a favorite. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Take 6 "ONE" sweet album!!

It's difficult to find a perfect blend of Soul, Jazz, and Gospel Music all roll into one, but consistantly these guys nail it. I Love it!!

An amazing album that gets better as you go...

After "The Standard" and "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," Take 6 introduces its first purely Christian album since "Feels Good" and it does not disappoint. Most of the songs on this album are familiar hymns or gospel songs, but with a unique Take 6 spin that they do so well. Needless to say, the harmonies are tight and the album is well produced. This one will hit home. The opening track, "Down Here I've Done My Best," is a rousing start that sets the stage for what follows. The title song, "One," is a classic that will remind fans of the T6 song "Grandma's Hands." Frequent Take 6 collaborator (and vocal superstar) Stevie Wonder gets into the act on "Can't Imagine Love Without You," which doesn't disappoint. The duo of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," which segues seamlessly into "In My Heart," is a great combination. They put on a vocal acrobatics show in a jazzy run of "Noah," and the setting of "Hallelujah" is divine. (It's a setting of Hallelujah by a famous composer, but I'm afraid I don't remember whom.) The album seriously keeps getting better and better, and "Farther Along," the penultimate track, is maybe my favorite of all. Bass Alvin Chea sings lead on the track, showing off vocals we haven't heard from him before (including some falsetto work -- great job, Vin!). All in all, "One" is a beautiful album that inspires and refreshes. Take 6 continues to be the best, even after 24 years...

Biography

Formed: 1985 in Alabama

Genre: Christian & Gospel

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

With its roots in gospel, doo wop, and the sophisticated jazz-influenced singing groups of mid-century America (such as the Hi-Los), the a cappella vocal group Take 6 is both a throwback to an earlier, more genteel era of American music and a precursor for a number of black male pop groups of the '90s, most notably Boyz II Men. Its members include David Thomas, Alvin Chea, Cedric Dent, Mark Kibble, Claude V. McKnight III, and Joey Kibble (who replaced Mervyn Warren). McKnight and Mark Kibble caught...
