Composer and pianist Richard Smallwood is gospel’s singular visionary. A Gospel Music Hall of Famer whose songs are as likely to be recorded by Aretha Franklin as Yolanda Adams, Smallwood makes the choir sound like a symphony, layering endlessly subtle shadings and textures into a music of magisterial exaltation.
