Kalaparush Maurice McIntyre : Humility In the Light of the Creator

To speak of singers not wearing well, most listeners will have heard enough of the chanting style of George Hines after one track on Humility in the Light of the Creator and, unfortunately, there are three in total, none of which get easier to listen to with the passage of time. This was an LP that got worn out on one side, as everything else about it is great. The long concluding suite is a knockout; it features such luminaries as Leo Smith, Malachi Favors, John Stubblefield and pianist Amina Claudine Myers. McIntyre’s tenor style is strong and well defined. The good stuff here is worth hearing; just use the skip button for the others.
