Description
(Contains the Grammy-winning song "Swing Low," which won the 2013 Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) award) Known for his staggering vocal technique and a cappella orchestrations, Bobby McFerrin is the son of the first African-American singer to land a leading role at the Metropolitan Opera. Robert McFerrin was also an acclaimed singer of gospel songs and spirituals, releasing Deep River in 1957. So one might call his son's new album "rootsy" in many senses of the word. Bobby overlays resonator guitar and accordion onto the title track of his father's LP and peppers the bluesy "Joshua"—inspired by Sister Rosetta Tharpe—with some signature scat singing. McFerrin takes Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" to church in what is now our favorite version and enlists Esperanza Spalding for a blissful, ecumenical "Whole World" ("He's Got the Whole World in His Hands"). Amen to that!

"Music is not solely for our entertainment. I think it's a divine instrument for healing in the body, mind, soul, spirit. I sincerely, truly believe that."—Bobby McFerrin

"Ever since he emerged from a family of singers to become the most creative (and—no small thing—most entertaining) jazz singer of the past two decades, his charm has been total and his appeal has seemed utterly universal…. The freshness he brings to that modern spiritual, Bob Dylan's 'I Shall Be Released' as well as 'Wade in the Water' helps epitomize the joyful virtuosity of what he does at his best. Wait until you year him alternate his falsetto and his ordinary voice on every other word of 'Wade's' outchorus. 'The reverent vaudeville' of 'When I Lay My Burden Down' is a little bit gospel choir, a little bit Grand Old Opry, a little bit 52nd Street bebop and all American, a joyous feast for the ears."—Buffalo News
