The human voice.
Singers. Vocalists. Solo. In groups. Harmonies. Dissonance.
The simple effect of massed voices.
Jazz. Blues. Folk. Pop. Psych. Electro. Classical. Doo Wop. Whatever.
Sometimes singing just for the joy of it.
Sometimes a voice not technically great but still with something great about it.
Intonations are involved too. Maybe not even words. A voice below the brain. Giving breath to feelings.
Backing vocals. Sometimes so crucial and innovative they are the true heart of a song.
Backing vocals that don’t deserve to be called backing.
Some of my favourite singers and vocal arrangements and performances.
