Ok… I know these posts are supposed to be every week, but my mind has just been blown to pieces tonight and I’m just too excited to keep this one to myself!!
I was just minding other people’s business on Facebook tonight as usual and noticed the latest Snarky Puppy video had just been released. This is from their latest project called Family Dinner (Volume One) which has a very similar concept to their past projects, which is them performing (their very amazing music) in a band room with an in-studio audience, and it’s all recorded.
The difference this time is that they’ve decided to team up with some of the vocalist that they’ve worked with in the past to perform along with them… and what a decision that was!
What I’ve witnessed tonight is a level of vocal mastery that I have never seen in my life! The amazing Lalah Hathaway has performed the song “Something” with Snarky Puppy and if you listen carefully from around 6:10 on the YouTube video you’ll notice that she’s creating THREE notes with her voice! The first time I heard it I was like… “wait… what was that just now…” then I scrubbed it back and listened to it again… and she did in fact create three notes with her voice! She did not do it just once, but she did it a whopping FOUR TIMES!!!!
Now I’ve known that this kinda this is possible, cause heck… I’ve even made two notes with my voice a few times, but accidentally. This lady has clearly mastered this technique and is doing a damn good job at using it musically!!!
A new found respect has been placed in my heart for Lalah… keep doing your thing girl… and keep inspiring others!
Anyway… I’ll have to let my excitement cool down… it’s late and I need to go sleep.
