Description

There is something magical and thoroughly original in the singing style of Al Hibbler. To put into words what happens exactly when he opens his wonderful pipes is difficult at best. His unique phrasing, his octave slides, his foggy, deep-throated quality, taken separately, might spell a limited performer. But add them up, together with Hibbler's highly personalised interpretation of a song - and what it says - and you have what is without question one of the most convincingly soulful, compelling voices in today's musical world. Duke Ellington, an intellectual man with a gift for an occasional phrase, was so sold on what he called Hibbler's "tonal pantomime" that he featured him as his band singer for eight years.
