Bobby McFerrin, a 10-time Grammy-winner, is one of the world’s foremost vocal innovators and improvisers, a classical conductor, and perhaps best known as the creator of “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” one of the most popular songs of modern day music.
Bobby McFerrin and Jack DeJohnette have been friends for decades, and together share a thirst for musical exploration. McFerrin participated on DeJohnette’s 1994 Blue Note/Capitol recording Extra Special Edition. DeJohnette is widely regarded as one of jazz music's greatest drummers. He has collaborated with most major figures in jazz history including Herbie Hancock, Betty Carter, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Chet Baker and many more.
Longtime friend and collaborator Chick Corea recorded two albums with McFerrin for Blue Note and Sony Records, Play and The Mozart Sessions. Corea is one of the most prolific composers of the second half of the 20th century.
