CD Reviews

Smooth jazz with brilliant vocals!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a must for all music-lovers, embracing the spirit of soul, the art of jazz and the mood of top-quality classical music. The Yellowjackets, who are well known for their successful collaborations with various artists, sets the scene perfectly and creates the best possible background for Mcferrins vocal-skills. No need to hesitate; just buy it."

"I love how people try to classify Mr. McFarrins music. To me it has no genre. Or better yet belongs in a genre of it's own - Bobby Music. As for this CD, it is with out a doubt one of my favorites. Much more mellow and contemporary than say, the Play album. If you like Mr. McFarrin's music beyond "Don't worry be Happy" I think you will enjoy this take. I turn to it when I've had a long day and need to slow things down a little. Bobby's voice is so calming; it has such a deep texture. The title of the album is a bit misleading; there are no "fireworks". It's more like the mesmerizing feeling you get when you sit around a fire with your friends and talk."
Any other Name besides Jazz would be Classical!

"Bobby Mcferrin, if anything, must be a Creative Genius! When we attended 2 concerts with the Atlanta Symphony, he conducted 5-6 of heavy Beethoven Symphony No 8, Ravel, Tchaikovsky... plus Impressionistic pieces that stayed in my memory for months! He is equally at home with classical, romantic, even Impressionism or flat-out Jazz!

Here in this 1995 CD I hear his creative genius in using 3,5,7,9 tone themes as contrapuntal themes either in contrary motion or mirror inversion or as patterns in cross-bar, cross-beat rhythm even as Robert Shaw described in conducting Beethoven's MISSA SOLEMNIS. Also I'm thrilled each time I hear these first three examples of Combined Vocalices + Instrumental tunes in contrast with each other!

Probably his Title Song, filling-up the first 5:32 minutes is one of interesting musical nuances, regardless whether one calls it bonefide Classical Jazz or anything else! Alongside FRIENDS and MERE WORDS, I love what he does with REMEBRANCE and the awesome SELIM of Miles Davis and his lush-sounding horn!

I really relate to this creative, freshly expressive performer, even when he just sits in a chair onstage, creating Musical Body Sounds for over 30 minutes! He is totally Amazing to this Elder, Retired Musician, Chaplain Fred W Hood"
