  • توماس أ. دورسي (بالإنجليزية: Thomas A. Dorsey)‏ هو كاتب أغاني وعازف جاز وعازف بيانو أمريكي، ولد في 1 يوليو 1899 في فيلا ريكا في الولايات المتحدة، وتوفي في 23 يناير 1993 في شيكاغو في الولايات المتحدة. (ar)
  • Thomas Andrew Dorsey, auch Georgia Tom, (* 1. Juli 1899 in Villa Rica, Georgia; † 23. Januar 1993 in Chicago) war Blues- und Gospel-Sänger und -Pianist. Dorsey war Sohn eines Baptistenpredigers und einer Klavierlehrerin und Neffe des Kirchenorganisten. Aber aus der Nachbarschaft war er auch anderen musikalischen Eindrücken ausgesetzt: Zirkusmusik, Blues, Vaudeville, Hillbilly Balladen, und die Revival-Hymnen von Billy Sunday's Kantor Homer Rodeheaver. In seiner späteren Jugend zog er nach Atlanta, wo er als Klavierbegleiter und Gesangslehrer arbeitete, etwa für Bluessängerinnen wie Bessie Smith und Ma Rainey. In Chicago, wo er ab 1916 Komposition und Arrangement studierte, spielte er bei Rent-Partys unter den Namen Barrelhouse Tom and Texas Tommy. Bekannt wurde er aber als Georgia Tom zusammen mit seinem musikalischen Partner Tampa Red. Mit ihm hatte er 1928 mit „It's Tight Like That“ einen großen Hit im Stil des sogenannten „Hokum Blues“. 1925 gründete er für Ma Rainey die „Wild Cats Jazz Band“. Der schlüpfrige Text von Liedern wie „It's Tight like That“ brachte ihm manchen Ärger ein, denn bald schon war er als Gospelmusiker bekannter noch als im Blues, und beim Gospel hatte er ein teils doch moralisch anspruchsvolleres Publikum. Er begann, seine eigenen Gospel-Kompositionen zu vermarkten. Darunter Hits wie „It's A Highway To Heaven“, die große Hymne unter den Gospelsongs „Take My Hand, Precious Lord“ geprägt durch den unverwechselbaren Sound der HB310, und besinnliche Lieder wie „What Then“. Er war der musikalische Mentor der berühmten Gospelsängerin Mahalia Jackson und schrieb für sie den Song „Peace In The Valley“. Er gründete den ersten Verlag für Black Gospel Musik. (de)

  • Thomas Andrew Dorsey (July 1, 1899 – January 23, 1993) was an American musician, composer, and Christian evangelist influential in the development of early blues and 20th-century gospel music. He penned 3,000 songs, a third of them gospel, including "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" and "Peace in the Valley". Recordings of these sold millions of copies in both gospel and secular markets in the 20th century. Born in rural Georgia, Dorsey grew up in a religious family but gained most of his musical experience playing blues at barrelhouses and parties in Atlanta. He moved to Chicago and became a proficient composer and arranger of jazz and vaudeville just as blues was becoming popular. He gained fame accompanying blues belter Ma Rainey on tour and, billed as "Georgia Tom", joined with guitarist Tampa Red in a successful recording career. After a spiritual awakening, Dorsey began concentrating on writing and arranging religious music. Aside from the lyrics, he saw no real distinction between blues and church music, and viewed songs as a supplement to spoken word preaching. Dorsey served as the music director at Chicago's Pilgrim Baptist Church for 50 years, introducing musical improvisation and encouraging personal elements of participation such as clapping, stomping, and shouting in churches when these were widely condemned as unrefined and common. In 1932, he co-founded the , an organization dedicated to training musicians and singers from all over the U.S. that remains active. The first generation of gospel singers in the 20th century worked or trained with Dorsey: Sallie Martin, Mahalia Jackson, Roberta Martin, and James Cleveland, among others. Author Anthony Heilbut summarized Dorsey's influence by saying he "combined the good news of gospel with the bad news of blues". Called the "Father of Gospel Music" and often credited with creating it, Dorsey more accurately spawned a movement that popularized gospel blues throughout African American churches in the United States, which in turn influenced American music and helped spawned the creation of all major American music forms in the 1900s and 2000s.

  • Thomas Andrew Dorsey (1 de Julho de 1899 - 23 de Janeiro de 1993) foi um músico, compositor e evangelista cristão estadunidense influente no desenvolvimento do blues inicial e da música gospel do século XX. Ele escreveu 3 000 canções, um terço delas gospel, incluindo " Take My Hand, Precious Lord " e "Peace in the Valley". As gravações desses venderam milhões de cópias nos mercados gospel e secular no século XX. Nascido na zona rural da Geórgia, Dorsey cresceu em uma família religiosa, mas ganhou a maior parte de sua experiência musical tocando blues em barricas e festas em Atlanta. Ele se mudou para Chicago e se tornou um compositor e arranjador proficiente de jazz e vaudeville no momento em que o blues estava se tornando popular. Ele ganhou fama acompanhando Ma Rainey em turnê e, juntou-se ao guitarrista Tampa Red em uma carreira de gravação de sucesso. Após um despertar espiritual, Dorsey começou a se concentrar em escrever e fazer arranjos musicais religiosos. Além das letras, ele não via nenhuma distinção real entre o blues e a música da igreja, e via as canções como um suplemento à pregação da palavra falada. Dorsey serviu como diretor musical na Igreja Batista Peregrina de Chicago por 50 anos, introduzindo a improvisação musical e encorajando elementos pessoais de participação como palmas, batidas de pés e gritos em igrejas quando estes eram amplamente condenados como não refinados e comuns. Em 1932, ele co-fundou a Convenção Nacional de Coros e Coros Gospel, uma organização dedicada a treinar músicos e cantores de todos os Estados Unidos que continua ativa. A primeira geração de cantores gospel do século 20 trabalhou ou treinou com Dorsey: Sallie Martin, Mahalia Jackson, Roberta Martin, e James Cleveland, entre outros. O autor Anthony Heilbut resumiu a influência de Dorsey dizendo que ele "combinou as boas novas do gospel com as más notícias do blues". Chamado de "Pai da Música Gospel" e frequentemente creditado por sua criação, Dorsey gerou com mais precisão um movimento que popularizou o blues gospel em todas as igrejas afro-americanas nos Estados Unidos, o que por sua vez influenciou a música americana e ajudou a gerar a criação de todos as principais formas musicais americanas nos anos 1900 e 2000.

Как пишет музыкальный сайт AllMusic, Дорси был «разносторонным композитором, работы который непринуждённо смещались от энергичного жётского госпела до лёгких гимнов». (ru)

  • Give me a song, I stick to the note and play it like it is, you won't pay much attention to it. In fact it won't go anywhere. You got to always have something: a little trick, a little embellishment or something. I don't go and take it just straight; I got to put something in it to get over. (en)
  • I think about all these blue-collar people who had to deal with Jim Crow, meager salaries, and yet the maid who cleaned up somebody else's house all week long, the porter, the chauffeur, the gardener, the cook, were nobody. They had to sit in the back of the bus, they were denied their rights, but when they walked into their church on Sunday morning and put on a robe and went down that aisle and stood on that choir stand, the maid became a coloratura, and when she stood before her church of five hundred to a thousand, two thousand people, she knew she was somebody. And I think the choir meant so much to those people because for a few hours on Sunday, they were royalty. (en)
