I’m a sucker for good A Cappella. Some of my personal favorites include The Nylons, Tonic Sol-Fa, T Minus 5, and Take-6. I own every album recorded by VoiceMale. And, who can resist the incomparable King’s Singers? Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of vocal “pyro-techniques”. It’s amazing how the vocal instrument can be used to similate other instruments, animal noises, sound effects…you name it!
Every once in awhile a group comes along that adds a whole new dimension to what people can do with the unaccompanied voice. Recently I discovered a tremendously talented vocal group billed as “Slovenia’s only Jazz Choir” named Perpetuum Jazzile. PJ is composed of about 40 very talented (and very good looking) young people. In the interest of promoting good music, I encourage you to check out their website (hint: they have their own online radio station – listen free by clicking the play button in the Rt. hand corner).
I present to you the impressive talent of Perpetuum Jazzile, performing AFRICA.
OK - I guess I better add the “MoSop disclaimer” – aparently more than a few readers of my post on the Susan Boyle Phenomenon are operating under the delusion that Ms. Boyle is a Mormon because I featured her! So, just to clear things up ahead of time for these lovely young Slovenians:
“I am a Mormon. I am a musician. I love good music. I often feature good music on my blog. Although many of my musical spotlights may be Mormon, many may not. [because, as "shocking" as it may be to some, good musical talent is not exclusive to Mormonism!]. :) – MoSop
