  • About This Album

    This groundbreaking second album from Bobby McFerrin features ten selections recorded live; the performances, notably, showcase McFerrin wholly unaccompanied, providing melody, harmony, and rhythm entirely on his own. The combination of wit and imagination on display show why the New York Times has called him "a singer without precedent."
