Mcferrin's Debut and his best!,
This review is from: Bobby McFerrin (Audio CD)
I bought this on Vinyl after seeing Bobby perform at the Capital Radio Jazz festival 1982. There he performed with Dizzy Gillespie & Chico Freeman in some extended scatting solo's , Wow!
This album is full of varied tunes showing Bobby's talent off to it's fullest. Classics such as Dance with me, You've really got a hold on me and a superb version of Van Morrison's Moondance are stand out tracks. Then there are beautiful tracks such as Horace silvers Peace and McFerrin's Sightless Bird. Other tracks demonstrate his unique style ( Jubilee and Chicken) which he would develop on future albums such as "The Voice".
Although I generally prefer My Jazz in a more instrumental vein, this is my favourite vocal album of all time and still sounds timeless today.
