Overview

Featuring a stellar supporting cast that includes Beverly Crawford, John P. Kee, Shirley Caesar, Donnie McClurkin, and Fred Hammond, this collection has a lot more to offer than a run-of-the-mill greatest hits. Culling special moments from previous Azusa Mass Choir projects, The Best of Azusa uplifts and energizes, as it showcases some delicious chestnuts from the gospel archives. Chief among these is Hammond's call-and-response-style take on Sam Cooke's "Jesus Be a Fence Around Me," and Pop Winans's electrifying performance of "This Train." But the scene stealer here is one of its newest selections, the bluesy "Is Your All on the Altar," recorded in 2001. As best-of projects go, this one certainly is worthy of the name.
