“Jump on it, Jesus”
Via reader MM, a vintage Hinsons clip. At MM’s recommendation, I’d urge you to skip to around the 6:00 mark when the song slows down and Kenny Hinson improvises his way through a long verse. I have no idea what Ronnie Hinson means when he says, “Jump on it, Jesus” in response to Kenny’s vocal embellishments, but it seems like exactly the right response all the same. Take a look, and listen:
That’s a pretty lame tune, but the formal weakness of the song itself only reinforces the Hinsons’ ability. You won’t want to miss the endings (plural, natch) … ignore Yvonne going flat (you try holding down your note in a situation like that) and pay attention to what Kenny Hinson does. It’s country gospel baroque with a perm.
Update: Grigs says Ronnie is saying “jump on HIM, Jesus,” which makes slightly more sense … but still … I think I’ll just keep shoutin’ my way through it all and let the spirit move … heheh.Email this Post
