“McFerrin lives and breathes vocal jazz.”—London Jazz News

“Ranky Tanky, from Charleston, S.C., sings old Gullah songs—some of them sly moral lessons—in arrangements that connect their beat to a New Orleans lilt.” —New York Times

Bobby McFerrin has been staging the most peaceful of musical revolutions for decades. The ten-time Grammy-winner continuously blurs the distinction between pop music and fine art, goofing around barefoot in the world's finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, and inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. His latest album, spirityouall, is a bluesy, feel-good recording, an unexpected move from the music-industry rebel who singlehandedly redefined the role of the human voice with his a cappella hit Don't Worry, Be Happy. Following that early career ear worm, his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic have defined his recent decades of defying all expectations.

Dress Circle Dress Circle means that two rows of seats are set up in front of row A.
