The McCrary Sisters come to gospel music through heredity as well as conviction. As daughters of a founding member of the seminal Fairfield Four, the quartet were reared in the ecstatic singing of the African-American church, yet their tastes are more Catholic than their forbearer’s. On All the Way, the Sisters deliver bluesy R&B, James Brown-style funk and soulful ’70-style rock imbued with spiritual or social messages. An ace backing band—of a caliber that equals that of the great Stax-Volt session players of the ’60s—supports the McCrarys throughout.
