“McFerrin lives and breathes vocal jazz”—London Jazz News
Bobby McFerrin has been staging the most peaceful of musical revolutions for decades. The 10-time Grammy-winner continuously blurs the distinction between pop music and fine art, goofing around barefoot in the world’s finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, and inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. His latest album, spirityouall, is a bluesy, feel-good recording, an unexpected move from the music-industry rebel who singlehandedly redefined the role of the human voice with his a cappella hit Don’t Worry, Be Happy. Following that early career ear worm, his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic have defined his recent decades of defying all expectations.
