The Sounds Of Blackness  In a far larger rehearsal studio, we join Sounds of Blackness, the 30-member group that has ranged from top gospel hits to soul dance numbers. ... With his powerhouse son on drums, he blows his way through a jazz set that climaxes as he is given one of Bix's old cornets and recreates the master's solo on "Jazz Me Blues." 

The group was founded in 1969 by Russell Knighton at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the group was called the Macalester College Black Voices. It was in 1971 when current director Gary Hines took leadership over the ensemble, and the group name was officially changed to Sounds of Blackness.
