To some people, Bobby McFerrin will always be the guy who sang Don’t Worry Be Happy. And he is that guy; he wrote and sang that global number one hit more than twenty years ago. But if that song is all you know about Bobby McFerrin, we suggest the following: Go to YouTube, type in Bobby’s name, sit back and prepare for a serious boggling of the mind.

By Touring Mars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This compilation contains some of the highlights from Bobby McFerrin's career, but is by no means comprehensive. An obvious place to start is with his massively successful hit 'Don't Worry Be Happy', which constitutes many people's only exposure to McFerrin, which is a shame as it is not representative of his best work, albeit a great song in it's own right.
The tracks on this album are a mixture of solo live recordings that are quite simply stunning, live performances with other (great) artists (like Chick Corea), and studio tracks like the afore mentioned single. Ranging from jazz ('Spain' and 'Another Night In Tunisia') to Beatles covers, one of which, 'From Me To You', is performed live and unaccompanied, as is one of the real highlights on the album. The other live and unaccompanied track is the magnificent 'Thinking About Your Body' (which was once used for a Cadbury's commercial, retitled 'Thinking About Your Chocolate'), and you can tell from the audience response that it must have been a sight to behold. By tapping rhythmically on his chest to create percussive sounds, and interspersing the vocal melody with bass notes and percussive tongue clicks, the result is a vocal one-man band like nothing you have ever heard before. With a vocal range of over two octaves, and the ability to hit any note perfectly in an instant, McFerrin is a virtuoso vocalist who pushed the boundaries of what the human voice can achieve. Simply put, Bob McFerrin is a unique and extraordinarly talented musician, a tag that is hard to disagree with even after a cursory listen to this CD.
This album doesn't feel like a 'Best Of' as much as it does a highly accomplished sampler, and as such is a great place to start if you want to get into his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Jazz Vocalist 4 April 2001
By Thomas Fitzharris - Published on
Format:Audio CD
For all lovers of Jazz, this is a must album to have. McFerrin uses his voice like an instrument and accomplishes AMAZING things with it. On this album you can hear his best work and some amazing collaborations with other jazz musicians. Personally, I find his rendition of Chick Corea's standard "Spain" to be the most amazing music I have heard in a long time. He and Corea form an awesome combination. I have heartily enjoyed this album and believe you will to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 4 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Remember Bobby McFerrin's hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy"? I was intrigued by his sounds then, but never got around to looking for an album of his work alone. Last month I picked up this album on impulse and I'm glad I did! "Best Of" covers a range of his music from four different albums, including both solo vocals, a cappella pieces (both solo and group), and a neat track from his album "Play" where he sings a jazz "duet" (battle?) with piano by Chick Corea. My favorite by far is "Freedom is a Voice". You can check out samples of "Freedom" and other tracks on this CD here at Amazon under the headings of his other albums. Try "Freedom is a Voice" at the page for his album "Bang!Zoom". Close your eyes and enjoy!

By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
this cd contains the essentials of his 4 albums: 'Bangzoom','Simple plesure','Play'& 'Spontaneous inventions'. we can hear his play in some numbers by alone, and some with other artist(herbie hancock,chick corea,manhattan transfer, etc...) that's all amazing! I have no idea where is he can't reach by his voices and imaginations! enjoy! you can feel that he's the very one!
