5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous book that cherishes the beauty in imperfection., 20 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Popular Singing: A Practical Guide to: Pop, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Country and Gospel (Paperback)
This is a rare find. Not only is this a practical guide that treats contemporary singing with respect and intellligence, it is also an erudite, personal and passionately written book that bristles with a genuine love of music. And that is the thing that separates this book from so much that is written about singing.
Instead of the vocal characteristics of artists being described as technical flaws, the author marvels in them. If Little Richard's musical outrageousness, Karen Capenter's heartbreaking whisper and Stevie Wonder's elastic improvisation skill are things that intrigue you, then this book is for you. The book explores the sound and effect of the voice whilst, crucially, constantly making the point that singing is all about communication of ideas, emotions and raw, visceral joy.
For anyone who has an interest in singing, or for those musicians who simply love to read the work of people inspired to write with clarity and enthusiasm, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
