My Brilliant Idea


I’ve been listening to Yo-Yo Ma’s new album Obrigado Brazil. I love it. Especially track 2 and 9. Absolutely beautiful stuff. I liked Yo-Yo before, but now that I’ve been attempting to play the cello for three weeks, I really really think he’s amazing.
Anyhoo, Josh and I had a discussion a few weeks ago about who we thought was the absolute best living singer. This included many facets meaning that they are capable of sounding beautiful in a variety of genres, are creative, have done something profound with their vocals, and are innovative creators. The only musician we agreed on (and also agreed was the absolute best) was Bobby McFerrin. He kicks my butt.
So the other day, I was sitting in my car listing to Yo-Yo’s new album, admiring it and cherishing it, when I got this brilliant idea. What would happen if Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin made an album together??? That would be so absolutely cool! It would be genius!
Then I realized that they already have made an album. Oh, and I also happen to own that album. And I have the entire thing memorized.
So much for my brilliant idea. It’s still brilliant. Just a little late. Oh well.
