The Legendary Orioles Live at Gee's 4400 Club 1992 African-American cassette tape; original tape in near mint condition; scarce; The Legendary Orioles are part of an ongoing African-American tradition of quartet singing with roots in the late nineteenth century. Quartets emerged in the South as a sacred music innovation when various groups û such as the Fisk Jubilee Singers from Fisk University began a concert-style re-arrangement of earlier slave spirituals. Local church congregations further adapted these songs, drawing influences from popular music styles of the day. Small groups of four or more singers, each responsible for singing a ôpartö such as bass, alto, lead, and tenor, became a mainstay in churches across the country. In the 1930s, the secular world was introduced to the quartet tradition, as numerous singers shifted their focus and their repertoires from religious to worldly concerns such as love, heartbreak, hard times, and hope for the future.
