The same spiritual force in some jazz music is the same as in sacred steel music, only literally & figuratively amped up. I learned that from the Campbell Brothers at the Duke Performances-sponsored discussion at the Pinhook in Durham last night. When they play their upbeat music, you cannot not move (unless perhaps you are spiritually dead). I suspect if you enter their church an atheist you will still meet the Holy Spirit once the music starts complementing the service & the ecstasy of church members. You may leave the church an atheist but still filled with that Spirit.
The Brothers said on WNCU a few minutes ago they'll be part of the discussion of "A Love Supreme" at the Carolina Theatre tonight at 7. If they bring their instruments, watch out.
