Saved & Sanctified: Songs of the Jade Label
Warning: Last items in stock!
Killer gospel work from a small Chicago label – most of it pretty darn funky and soulful as well!
The label sticker on the album's cover states a link too musical roots in the deep south – but the overall sound here is more in that wonderful hybrid of spiritual and secular that happened in the Chicago scene in the 70s – as hipper, more sophisticated modes came into play with the message – and resulted in grooves that are equally appealing to soul music fans as well!
All the cuts were put together in a tiny studio on the city's west side – and as with most Numero projects, the package provides an essential look at a musical scene we might have missed.
