Some Gospel music for you heathens in the halfway mark of the first week of the last month of the longest year. Amen.
Gathered in a big airy space in his hometown of New Orleans, PJ and his band performed three selections from the now Grammy-nominated The Gospel According To PJ, his very first gospel album. He grew up playing gospel music but chose secular music as his professional path. The album brings him back full circle, a journey mapped out in conversations on the album with his father, Bishop Paul S. Morton. PJ only sings lead on one song but is clearly the maestro for this Tiny Desk (home) concert. They open with the reggae-infused “So In Love,” featuring Darrel Walls and Zacardi Cortez and close with “Repay You,” featuring J Moss. I think we could all use a little praise music as we round out 2020 and who better to offer it than the preacher’s son, Paul Morton, Jr.?
