Bobby McFerrin

Vocalist extraordinaire Bobby McFerrin took a page out of his opera-singer father’s playbook and last year recorded an album of spirtuals, “spirityouall.” Of course, McFerrin’s takes on “Swing Lou Sweet Chariot,” “Glory, Glory” and “Wade in the Water” are far from familiar but they are as spirited as they are alluring. And he turns Bob Dylan’s “I Shall Be Released” into a slow, intimate spiritual experience. McFerrin, a familiar visitor to Orchestra Hall and the former creative chair of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, is appearing with his band that includes famed arranger/keyboardist Gil Goldstein, multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield (who used to play with Bob Dylan and Bruce Hornsby) and vocalist Madison McFerrin, Bobby’s daughter.
