5.0 out of 5 stars Mahalia 4 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Have wanted this cd for years, I used to have a LP of it, and have often tried to get it on cd .

I still remember seeing her at the Albert hall one Sunday, followed by Ella on the Monday.
What a weekend!!

Parts of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival formed the film "Jazz On A Summer's Day" which I watched as often as possible at the cinema. When Mahalia Jackson came on stage and sang to the audience they were hushed by the emotional power of her voice and applauded with great enthusiasm. For me she was the greatest of all gospel singers and a lady deserving of great love and respect. Her rendition of The Lord's Prayer overwhelms me even now when I hear it over 50 years later. The piano accompaniment is simple but very effective with its slightly jazz/blues feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It simply doesn't get better than this... 26 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
Gospel fans have known for a long time, what a few more of us should know about. Namely, Mahalia Jackson. This album is stacked full of joyously testifying tunes and Mahalia with gives them all she's got. Her vocal style is at once hugely powerful but also refined and soulful. From the misery and regret of 'I'm Going to Live the Life I Sing About' to the exuberance of 'Didn't It Rain' and 'When The Saints Go Marching In' , she lets us know that her faith is all about seeking forgiveness, trusting in God's love and fighting everyday against the encroachment of sin. Her faith is a journey through the travails of this World, made lighter by the beauty and meaning that she expresses so eloquently through her music. Her path is the one leading upward. All she wants to do is encourage us to join her. But because her performance is so committed it would be a stoney hearted listener indeed who could avoid being moved by her musical testimony.

So, 'Newport 1958' is as many reviewers have suggested is a classic album. For some the sound quality may be a little variable. Yes this is not an audiophile recording but it is very atmospheric and gives a real impression of what the audience must have heard that day. So, if you don 't mind listening to one of the greatest singers of all time amid a few enthusiastic hoots and holllahs then this disc is for you. Listen to Mahlia's take on 'Keep Your Hand on the Plow' or the bluesy narrative 'Jesus Met the Well' and be prepared to be overwhelmed. Recommended.

Born to a poor family in 1911 in New Orleans, Mahalia Jackson grew up singing in her father's church--and soaking up the blues and jazz for which that city is so famous. By the late 1920s she was in Chicago, where her distinctly jazz and blues-inflected singing style nearly got her thrown out of the Greater Salem Baptist Church. But Mahalia persevered, and in the early 1950s a series of radio and television broadcasts launched her first to national and then international acclaim. Some thirty years after her death in 1972, she is still considered the single greatest gospel singer America has ever produced.
I discovered Jackson in a serious way a year or so ago, and since then I have gone out of my way to purchase every one of her recordings that comes my way: if ever God gave breath to a gospel singer, it was to this woman, and her voice grabs you and rings you like a great bell. And after reading several commentaries on the brilliance of her 1958 performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, I was particularly eager to have this one.
Sad to say, the sound quality of this recording is very, very bad. You can actually hear the roars of the audience with greater clarity than you can hear Jackson--and given the power of her voice that is an astonishing thing. At times it sounds as if Jackson and the microphone are at opposite ends of the stage; at other times it sounds for all the world as if Jackson is singing inside a barrel. And more than anything, the recording leaves me with a tremendous frustration--for in its occasional moments of clarity it is very obvious that Jackson was giving a truly brilliant performance.
For all the frustration involved, I do not regret this purchase. If nothing else, it gives one a very clear idea of how Jackson interacted with her audience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 28 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Not as good as the difficult to get but more edgy and emotive '57 Newport set although a better recording.
