    NCIS: New Orleans Preservation Hall Stage

THE LASTIE FAMILY GOSPEL was originally planned as a straight jazz album by drummer Joe Lastie Jr. with a few gospel tracks. However, members of Lastie’s family and the organist Reverend Leon Vaughn more or less took over the session with impromptu performances of some gospel standards. The reuslt is a heartfelt and earthy exploration of classic Southern gospel music. It’s the casual, unrehearsed nature of these performances that gives them their vibrancy, with the Lastie family singing for themselves and the Deity.
