Gasp! Mtume, no haps on Take 6 or Manhattan Transfer??? That hurts my heart. I’m normally right there with you on a lot of your "new school" observations, but not appreciating the vocal superiority of a group like Take 6 I just cannot understand. Digging the mix of music you all have offered this week.

Take 6 is a fantastically talented vocal group, obviously. I guess I can say I appreciate what they do without actually liking it. It’s just a personal taste thing. I’m not denying at all how well they sing and peform. … Manhattan Transfer too. They’re good. I just don’t like it.

Well. This is about Elis. Sunny and inviting? We Brazilians would never have thought of Elis that way. To us she was more like a skilled and precise warrior. Once she sang a song, it was done sung. Not because of the power of her voice (which she had, just listen to her ‘Gracias a la Vida’), but because of ‘afinacao’, a concept highly important in Brazilian music, which I find hard to translate into English. If you want sunny go for Baby Consuelo, also a favorite of mine.
