Saints' Paradise: Trombone Shout Bands from the United House of Prayer

Beyond jazz, blues, or gospel as most know it, this is the powerful trombone shout band music of the legendary United House of Prayer for All People. While much public attention is lavished on brass band jazz of New Orleans, these remarkable sacred shout bands of the Eastern seaboard have remained largely unheard except inside the church built by the late Bishop C.M. "Daddy" Grace. In this first-ever anthology, the top House of Prayer shout bands perform live—showing how a choir of trombone "voices" brings congregations to "one accord" of ecstasy with the Spirit.
