Bobby McFerrin's incredible vocal range and light-hearted style led to the most unique, and best loved, #1 hits of all time "Don't Worry, Be Happy". That 1988 smash hit leads this collection of his very best.
1.Don't Worry, Be Happy
3.Another Night In Tunisia
4.Even For Me
7.I Hear Music
Although this anthology is named after Bobby McFerrin's one chart hit, 1988's feel-good novelty song "Don't Worry, Be Happy," it provides a much broader overview of this exceptional vocal talent. One of the most unique jazz singers of all time, McFerrin moves beyond simple scatting into a sometimes otherworldly set of vocal sounds. Five live tracks include a pair of duets with Chick Corea on the duo's own "Even For Me" and the Thelonious Monk standard "Round Midnight," as well as a playful audience participation piece called "I Love Music." Another highlight is 1985's "Another Night In Tunisia," a collaboration on the Dizzy Gillespie classic with earlier vocal jazz master Jon Hendricks and the vocalese group Manhattan Transfer.
