Rachelle Ferrell & George Benson: Everything Must Change

Rachelle Ferrell
Duration: 6:56

Rachelle Ferrell's performance on this standard could be one of the most powerful jazz vocal examples in the history of the genre... period. Her range spans low alto to supersonic whistle tones, while her jaw and lips bend in ways rarely seen, achieving a horn-like quality. Her vibrato is flawless and the strength of her "pipes" could power a cathedral organ. When you're a young singer like Ferrell in 1991 who stuns her fellow soloists George Benson and harmonica legend Toots Thielmans, you know you have a magical career ahead of you,

It is suggested you start with Ferrell's first notes at [2:16] through to the end, then replay from Benson's opening of the piece.
