CD Reviews

Tremendous Jazz Vocalist
Thomas Fitzharris | Dallas, TX USA | 04/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For all lovers of Jazz, this is a must album to have. McFerrin uses his voice like an instrument and accomplishes AMAZING things with it. On this album you can hear his best work and some amazing collaborations with other jazz musicians. Personally, I find his rendition of Chick Corea's standard "Spain" to be the most amazing music I have heard in a long time. He and Corea form an awesome combination. I have heartily enjoyed this album and believe you will to."
A good introduction

"Remember Bobby McFerrin's hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy"? I was intrigued by his sounds then, but never got around to looking for an album of his work alone. Last month I picked up this album on impulse and I'm glad I did! "Best Of" covers a range of his music from four different albums, including both solo vocals, a cappella pieces (both solo and group), and a neat track from his album "Play" where he sings a jazz "duet" (battle?) with piano by Chick Corea. My favorite by far is "Freedom is a Voice". You can check out samples of "Freedom" and other tracks on this CD here at Amazon under the headings of his other albums. Try "Freedom is a Voice" at the page for his album "Bang!Zoom". Close your eyes and enjoy!"
Best of the Best!

"this cd contains the essentials of his 4 albums: 'Bangzoom','Simple plesure','Play'& 'Spontaneous inventions'. we can hear his play in some numbers by alone, and some with other artist(herbie hancock,chick corea,manhattan transfer, etc...) that's all amazing! I have no idea where is he can't reach by his voices and imaginations! enjoy! you can feel that he's the very one!"
