4.0 out of 5 stars First echoes of greatness 22 Jan. 2000
By David J. Loftus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is Bobby McFerrin's true solo debut. His previous, eponymous album had backing singers and musicians; the cuts on this album are all truly solo (save for a song or two when he assigns the audience the role of rhythm and harmony backing), and among them are mind-blowing examples of what would make his work truly memorable and unique.
The three best cuts are his rendition of McCartney's "Blackbird" (only three audible but soundless intakes of breath in the whole song! is it due to singing while inhaling or circular breathing! ), a hugely infectious rendition of James Brown's "I Feel Good," and a delightful original composition, "I'm My Own Walkman," which says just what he is and does.
Most of the other cuts are pleasurable or interesting, and pave the way for his next and greatest (largely) solo voice work on _Spontaneous Inventions_.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic live work from the Dalai Lama of Music 18 Jun. 2003
By J. Nordstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been a fan of McFerrin's for years, and I bought this CD after having had the privilege of singing with him, and wanting to hear some more of his live/improv stuff. The CD is great -- really gives the flavor of his improvisational genius, and his warm sense of humor and joie de vivre.
I know that calling him the Dalai Lama of Music may sound a bit extreme, but he is truly a magical and charismatic person -- the joy that he has in music and his life shows in his face every time he sings. He is truly an ambassador for music, and I wholeheartedly recommend not only this wonderful, fun album, but also to take any opportunity you have to see this man perform live (his real forte) -- and sit as close to the stage as possible! I guarantee you will never forget it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible work of art - true musicianship found here! 24 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bobby Mc Ferrin's "The Voice" is truly an incredible recording. Totally original, and overflowing with creativity, the album highlights McFerrin's amazing vocal flexibility. Performed totally solo, with no over-dubbing, the only way to describe his antics is with the words vocal acrobatics. For vocal Jazz lovers, this would be a solid investment.

McFerrin's debut album is a real winner. If you love the voice as an instrument, you'll love this album. Before McFerrin got famous and fancy, this was his stand-out introduction to listeners. Simple and superlative.
