Bookmark and Share

For decades, Bobby McFerrin has broken all the rules. The 10-time Grammy winner waged a quiet revolution, blurring the distinction between pop music and high art, goofing around barefoot in the world's finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. Now he surprises us by bringing it all back home with his new album, spirityouall from Sony Masterworks.

Primarily a Roots and Gospel album, spirityouall is making an impact at Jazz radio as it lands on this week's Jazzweek Top 50. Jazz is secondary format for this album demonstrating once again McFerrin's ability to gain wide acceptance at multiple Radio genres.
