Producer, recording artist and singer/songwriter Sherwin Gardner is a Godly force who since the age of 16 has been spreading the gospel around the globe. He has shared the stage with many of today’s gospel greats including Kirk Franklin, DA T.R.U.T.H. and Israel Houghton; now Gardner looks to make his mark on the world with his debut Tyscot release entitled GREATER. Stand out tracks on this hit laden album include “Restoration,” a high energy song declaring God’s restorative power; the Island flavored make you happy song ironically dubbed “Trouble” celebrating the fact that as believers we have the victory, and the lead radio single “Because Of You,” Sherwin’s beautiful song of praise, worship, reflection and understanding that God’s plan prevails; that he (Gardner) lives, breathes and owes everything to Him!

Widely regarded as the greatest gospel singer of all time, Mahalia Jacksom made her impact felt across several musical genres. Her appearances at the 1957 and 1958 Newport Jazz Festivals exposed her to audiences that had previously been unaware of her abilities, just as her weekly radio show (which began in 1954) had done earlier in the decade. By 1961 she was considered almost part of the musical mainstream, resulting in her singing at President Kennedy’s inaugural ball. This album was originally released in 1955, her first Christmas album, but would be reissued six years later to great success.

If the bazillion packagings and repackagings of Mahalia Jackson’s music confound you and you don’t know where to start, this expertly compiled, carefully annotated double-disc box set is for you. Jackson wasn’t just gospel music’s first international superstar–she was among its earliest adherents and inventors. Working with the great composer and former blues singer Thomas A. Dorsey in the late 1930s, Jackson gave a distinctly blues-trained, jazzy sass and grace to Dorsey’s material and the other hymns and spirituals she sang. More than any other performer, she helped to define gospel music itself as a transcendent, rootsy, melismatic, and heady spiritual sound. Culled from her sides for Columbia in the 1950s and 1960s, some of the arrangements in the set are not ideal and may sound quite a bit dated, but that voice shines and soars and dives straight to the center of your heart. Whether backed by a simple organ or piano or with full studio accompaniment, Jackson’s booming, instantly recognizable contralto is indescribable, exciting, and forever a wonder to behold. And if you think that’s an exaggeration, you don’t own this record.

Tony Fontane was born Anthony Trankina on Sept. 18, 1925, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After a stint in the Coast Guard during World War II, he hit the nightclub circuits in New York and Chicago hoping for a break as a singer. Using the stage name Tony Fontane, he won the Major Bowes Amateur Hour, which started him on a career as a popular singer. He recorded for Mercury Records, with his biggest hits being “The Syncopated Clock” and “Cold, Cold Heart,” which sold 1.4 million records in 1950. He toured Australia in two shows, and made several hit records in that country. In 1957, back in the United States, Fontane was involved in a car crash that put him in a coma for more than a month and severely threatened his life. After recovering, he devoted his life solely to Christian music and, by the 1960s, was one of the most famous gospel singers in the world. A recording contract with RCA produced 20 or more very successful gospel albums. On June 30, 1974, Fontane died at the age of 48. His funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park was attended by an estimated 10,000 people.
