Bobby McFerrin "Everytime"

"More than the sum of its parts" is certainly a cliche.  But sometimes it's true.

We don't really ever play Jack White.

And we don't really ever play Loretta Lynn.

But when they got together for "Portland Oregon" they created the kind of weird alchemy which deserves a home on the station.

It happens every once and a while.  Two artists, with no particular connection to MVY, do something together and the pairing deserves attention.

That's why we added the new Bobby McFerrin tune.

In the 13 years I've been here, I've never heard Bobby McFerrin on the station.  But his new album "SpiritYouAll" is getting rave reviews.

And on the track "Everytime" he sings with Esperanza Spaulding, and though neither of them on their own have done any recent work that suggested they were a good fit for the station, the thing they are doing together totally merits 3 minutes of your ear time.

Hear the song on Youtube.
