Don’t Worry, Be Happy made Bobby McFerrin a household name, while his Simple Pleasures album was a high-water mark for vocal jazz. Such a record was Bobby McFerrin’s ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’, released as a single in September 1988, which transformed an obscure New York jazz singer into an international sensation. Though McFerrin’s name eventually became synonymous with unaccompanied a cappella singing, his self-titled debut album, released by Blue Note, in 1982, when McFerrin was 32, was a more orthodox jazz record with instrumental backing. But that all changed with his next album, 1984’s The Voice, which was not only his first LP featuring strictly a cappella vocals, but was also unprecedented in the jazz world.
