For a great introduction to the music (and band) of Fred Hammond, pick up his Live in Chicago - POL Chapter 3 DVD. Maurice Fitzgerald is an excellent bassist and the band is tight. On a related rant: It's too bad contemporary praise and worship music can't seem to match the energy and sheer joy of modern gospel. Or maybe the praise and worship record companies are even more restrictive than secular companies about who they sign and how many chances they allow their artists to take. I don't know.
