Grammy nominated a cappella vocal arranger and producer Richard Bob Greene has always attempted to have his arrangements do “more with less” - to have the listener hear the full power and weight of the band, even though there’s no band playing. Vocals without instruments have an accessibility, an intimacy and a vulnerability that you just can’t achieve when you’re counting on guitars, basses and drums for support.
This CD takes that approach to the ultimate. With Angie’s warm, accurate, and intense soprano and Dan’s incredibly-rangy funky baritone/tenor, scatting and vocal percussion you’ll hear a fullness of sound that belies the fact that there are just two voices, no overdubbing and no multi- tracking. Melody, harmony, rhythm, meaning of the text, it’s all there ..... Along with some playfulness and vocal virtuosity that will have you grooving and asking yourself “How are they doing that?”
These twelve tunes include well known and less well known jazz standards from the ‘20s to the ‘00s, a rocker from Queen, a Joe Jackson ballad, and two Astor Piazzolla tangos - one of which has the bonus of Richard Bob singing a third (bass) part.
