Overview

Bobby McFerrin is an American jazz vocalist known for his great vocal techniques, such as singing fluidly with quick and considerable jumps in pitch.

He is widely known for performing and recording regularly as an unaccompanied solo vocal artist. McFerrin’s song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” was a No. 1 U.S. pop hit in 1988 and won Song of the Year and Record of the Year honors at the 1989 Grammy Awards. He has frequently collaborated with other artists from both the jazz and classical scenes, including pianists Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Zawinul, drummer Tony Williams, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

 

Concept
Here my humble homage to the greatest singer of all times Bobby Mcferrin.
The song “Thinking About Your Body” has a special meaning for me as we, Bobby and I, have jammed on it live at his concert in Geneve.

 

Music

For this song I have used my body to do the drum kick, voice to make the bass and harmony, clothespin with some distortion to make the snare and a metal plant vase to do the percussion. I’ve sampled Bobby Mcferrin’s voice and video to manipulate and play with live.
