The title of Ain't That News is a tribute to the superb Staple Singers, who sang a piece by that name, not otherwise quoted in this chart. The opening seven measures are an adaptation of an old Paul Robeson 78 that has always moved me. Teh rest of the piece is original material intended to pay homage to both the black church and black pop music, just one of the many genres that owes its soul to be spiritual. My goal is to allow even the most demure chorister to have at least a little taste of what it would be like to be Aretha Frankllin.
