This the group's gospel album, honoring one of the main components of New Orleans jazz that seldom gets recorded for more than a tune or two. Despite their age, the group blows with a sweetness that only comes with years of playing together, and the band turns in spirited versions of "I Shall Not Be Moved," "The Old Rugged Cross," "Do Lord," "God Will Take Care of You," and "He Touched Me." The patriarch of New Orleans' most famous musical family, Ellis Marsalis, guests on piano for two tracks.
