New York’s own hard-driving Pentecostal brass band, McCollough Sons of Thunder, has rocked audiences with its rousing renditions of inspirational pieces arranged for trombones, trumpets, sousaphones, and drums. The group, consisting of members of Harlem’s United House of Prayer for All People Church, is under the direction of the extraordinary trombonist Elder Edward Babb, winner of the National Heritage Fellowship. Emerging from the Holiness/Pentecostal movement that took literally the Psalm’s commandment to “praise the Lord with song and trumpet,” this brass shout band melds the sounds of early blues and jazz with the driving rhythms of southern sanctified music.
