Wokalistyka Jazzowa premiera polska: 2021-07-14 opakowanie: digipackowe etui opis: Editor's info: Virtuosic vocalist/composer and international performer, Michael Mayo establishes himself as one of the most acclaimed and versatile voices in music today, with his label debut, Bones on Artistry Music/Mack Avenue Music Group. Produced by Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, J Dilla, Robert Glasper, Maceo Parker). Michael is a gifted singer and arranger who is only the third vocalist ever accepted into the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (now the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz) in its 20-year history. Michael moves with ease between interpreting classics with a small group or big band, to creating experimental and improvisational solo compositions that can have as many as 250 looped and layered vocal lead and choral harmony parts. Michael has toured internationally with Herbie Hancock and he’s been the featured vocalist on the following artists’ releases: Kneebody, Scary Pockets, Amber Navran
JAZZIZ MAGAZINE: Still in his early 20s, singer-composer Michael Mayo has developed his own lush, neo-soul sound that adroitly showcases his clear tenor, which glides over luxuriant clouds of his multi-tracked vocals. On the mostly wordless “Stolen Moments” (not to be confused with the Oliver Nelson tune), Mayo layers more than 250 of his own voice parts to stir up five-minute cocktail that combines elements of jazz vocal groups, contemporary psychedelic soul, the heavenly harmonies of the Beach Boys and even a dash of doo-wop. As a lead singer, Mayo exhibits preternatural command in range and phrasing. He brings to mind a more disciplined Frank Ocean. Mayo sprinkles in vocalese with aplomb, and when he unleashes his falsetto, which he does sparingly, it adds a jolt of delight. Producer Eli Wolf wisely highlights Mayo’s voice, undergirding it with tasteful instrumental work by a drummer, keyboardist and bassist that Mayo has known since high school and his tenure at the New England Conservatory of Music, where got his jazz education. The young man can write, too. Bones showcases 11 originals, each with a smooth, finely wrought melody, which provide sturdy vehicles for the hypnotic swirl of his singing. A handful of tunes — most notably “The Way” “Another Love” and “20/20” — could be pop hits in waiting.
