Jefferson County, Alabama, is home to a distinct a cappella gospel style which developed in the African-American community during the regions industrial development in the early 20th century. Featuring a “pumping bass” sound and smooth harmonies, this music has been perpetuated by well-organized quartets who elect officers and have a schedule of practices.
