Although vocal arranger Howard Roberts (not the guitarist) made some nice funky records in his time, this is a fairly traditional batch of spirituals, augmented by African production, and packaged in a style that’s designed to appeal to the white liberal – even though the conception of the project is fairly authentic. Roberts himself plays tenor on the session, and the overall sound is sort of a mix between a Max Roach vocal project and one of the Art Blakey drum ensemble records. Titles include “Hold On”, “Sinner Man”, “Steal Away”, and “Let My People Go”.
