ZCKY2XG4Q87G The Jackson Southernaires Coming “˜Back Again’ to California
By Larry Buford
They’re coming to Southern California with a truckload of southern soul, and since the best advertisement is word of mouth, some of the comments from fans about the “Back Again” CD by The Jackson Southernaires seem to say it all: “Every song on the CD could be rated number one. They are my favorite Gospel [group]”¦their songs are spirit-filled and a blessing to me.” Another says, “I love listening to The Jackson Southernaires”¦it’s amazing how good their music makes you feel”¦”
Although we’ve heard The Jackson Southernaires’ amazing sound for many years, they seem to have captured something excitingly new in their latest CD which was released two years ago. Track number five “God Is On My Side” is in heavy rotation on Gospel radio programs, and the whole eleven-track set is drenching with the soul and inspiration that we’ve come to expect from these gentlemen of the Gospel. Each member of the trio ““ Huey Williams, Maurice Surrell, and James Burks ““ has a distinct voice that blends harmoniously with precision and perfection, but it’s lead singer Williams’ phenomenal voice that carries the day.
When listening to the reflective/meditative songs like ’24 Hours,’ and “˜I Need You,’ the bouncy “˜Another Day,’ or foot-stomping songs like “˜He’s Got Me,’ “˜In My Heart,’ and “˜My Father’s House,’ one can easily see why The Jackson Southernaires remain one of the top Gospel recording groups in Mississippi, and throughout the world. The CD also features a wonderful remake of the Andre Crouch classic “˜Take Me Back.’
