Released: Jan 1985
Label: Rhino Atlantic
With this classy release MT explores "vocalese," the eccentric art of turning famous instrumental jazz solos into vocal showcases. The album's a real love letter to mid-20th Century jazz. Jon Hendricks crafted all the lyrics and appears -- along with Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby McFerrin, and James Moody -- on MT's most jazz-oriented album.
