Product Description:

With the follow-up to his fairly straightforward 1982 self-titled jazz-pop debut, singer Bobby McFerrin stunned listeners by issuing a truly "solo" album, a live recording that features only his remarkable, octave-jumping vocals (with no overdubbed tracks or other production tricks). Not only is THE VOICE a landmark jazz release, it reveals the wide scope of McFerrin's artistic range, with the performer offering up wildly inventive versions of the Beatles "Blackbird," James Brown's "I Feel Good," and Duke Ellington's "Take the A-Train" (here titled simply "A-Train").
While "Blackbird" showcases McFerrin's impressive breathing techniques and sound effects, "I Feel Good" calls attention to his incredible sense of rhythm and knack for imitating instruments, leaving "A-Train" to spotlight his considerable scatting skills. Rounded out by a number of playful originals (most notably the humorous "I'm My Own Walkman"), this album is essential listening for anyone interested in the surprisingly vast capabilities of the human voice.
