Current Month's Guess Thread: June

Hints: Gospel / Female / Demolished Baseball Stadium / 1956

Front Runner: Sister Rosetta Tharpe - Gospel Train

Trying to remember what compelled me to guess that... I think I was just searching some list of well-known gospel artists and saw her, made the VMP connection from the exclusive last year, and found the most likely album.

I already know this opinion isn't welcome, after getting virtually yelled at a few years ago when I argued against the idea of VMP doing any Christmas exclusives/having a Christmas-focused December store, but... I'll be Incredibly disappointed if that's the artist & album. I'm well-aware of her being an early influence on R&R, and if she'd ever done an album of just blues, I'd be more okay with that.

I'm a Classics completionist, and have all of them to this point, but I really have no use/interest for any gospel. While I'm more accepting of instrumental Classical music that goes in this direction (e.g., *not* Handel's Messiah), I really don't want any overt Christian music. They're already the dominant religion & dominate politics to an unwelcome degree. They can fuck right off getting exposure this way, too.

I thought it would be a Blue Note title by either Shorter or Hancock, but back on the Red Keep forum, Storf said Blue Note wasn't until later in the year, but confirmed that July was a blockbuster jazz title.
Storf said it wasn’t Hancock. I’d link to his reply but, well... you know.
No Herbie, no BN... hmmm... maybe a Mingus title on Impulse? There's a couple coming out with those Verve reissues though, so maybe not.

Maybe a well-known Columbia title, like something by Brubeck or Monk?

That album has religious ties, certainly, but it doesn't really feel that religious either. Amazing Grace by Aretha feels 10x more religious than Gospel Train.

Thanks for setting this up @TCell!

I was starting to get nervous sweats from not being able to check the guesses!!
On the old site the Classic guess threads didn't get too long so I thought I'd just put the current month's clues and valid guesses in that 2nd post and we could just discuss it as it goes rather than a separate guess thread every month, but if someone else wanted to set up a separate guess thread that's cool too.
