Krentz Ratings:
The Voice (1984), 7/10
Circlesongs (1996), 6/10

San Francisco-based vocalist Bobby McFerrin (1950) cut The Voice (march 1984), the first solo vocal album in the history of jazz music. His vocal style was among the most versatile since the days of Jeanne Lee and Jay Clayton, although the material had often the effect of turning his improvisations into novelties rather than avantgarde. In fact, he later crossed over into pop and even classical music, returning to creative improvisation only with Circlesongs (may 1996).
