Vocal Six

Vocal Six

Male Contemporary Sextet from Helsingborg, Sweden.

Vocal Six are a group of six men with excellent vocal powers who love to sing without the accompaniment of musical instruments - i.e. an a cappella sextet. They consider Skåne (south of Sweden) their basecamp. From there they travel all over the country, crossing bridges and borders to the outside of the country, to let people enjoy the euphony of their voices.

Vocal Six have been on the right track(s) for some time now. A few of them may be found in any average Swedish record collection. So far they have recorded six CDs, six sets of vocal items that guarantee musical satisfaction for nearly everyone.

Vocal Six : International : 1 CD

Vocal Six : International

We aren't quite sure what it is - the long winter nights, something in the genes or perhaps the great Scandinavian beer but those Swedes sure know how to sing! While the Real Group is Sweden's leading vocal jazz group Vocal Six is probably the country's leading contemporary a cappella group which is clearly demonstrated on this fine new release. A collection of their English tracks from earlier albums plus several new cuts shows the wide range of the sextet as there is a dab of disco, a great Tom Jones medley, a Tony Bennett track, an unusual "Dancing Queen" and the very fun "Las Vegas". Vocal Six are also great performers with a dynamic and exciting stage presence and you will be thoroughly entertained by this recording.

Songlist: Good Vibrations, Tom Jones Contest, Second To None, Dancing Queen, Reet Petite, The Things We Do For Love, Who Wants To Live Forever, Halleljuah I Just Love Her So, Kiss From A Rose, Las Vegas, Wannabee Gees, Everytime We Say Goodbye, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, Bohemian Rhapsody

Vocal Six : Vocal Six : 1 CD

Vocal Six : Vocal Six

First CD by Swedish male sextet, Vocal Six, released in 1992. Though broadly classified as contemporary, in actuality their sound, and selection of material, leans heavily towards jazz. Compact close harmony, brilliant swipes and scat breaks characterize their style, as exemplified by "Music, Music, Music," "My Baby Just Cares For Me" and a deliciously understated arrangement of "I Left My Heart In San Francisco." A poignant, piano-accompanied "My Funny Valentine," wrings out every teardrop, as does the haunting Sting cover, "Sister Moon." Vocal Six plays the dance card with the "Bad/Thriller" medley and the group's own "Barberhouse Acid Rap," where they loosen their collars and grunt, James Brown style.

Songlist: Wake Up!, Lady Madonna, Tango, Bad/ Thriller, Sister Moon, Barberhouse Acid Rap, Music, Music, Music, My Baby Just Cares for Me, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, My Funny Valentine, Baby, Hooked on a Feeling, John Blund

Vocal Six : Why Dance : 1 CD

Vocal Six : Why Dance    onsale

This 1994 recording shows the Swedish sextet developing their own writing skills, and singing in Swedish on five tracks. Their sound is a forceful melding of both jazz and contemporary, with neither idiom gaining the upper hand. "Sensuella Isabella" features an explosive vocal guitar, while actual guitar guests, along with harmonica, on the ambling, roadhouse "Tomma Ramar Blues." "Bohemian Rhapsody," augmented by the "Bohemian Choir," duplicates the original vocal arrangement closely, and maintains the song's energy capably throughout, with plump, thickly-textured chordal backing. Close, vertical harmonies dominate "The Way You Look Tonight' and "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring," allowing the tonalities to blossom with rich color.

Songlist: Why Dance, The Way You Look Tonight, Alf Beror Pa Mej, Walk Between The Raindrops, Tomma Ramar Blues, Sensuella Isabella, Ta Mef Til Havet, Tvalen (En Blyg Mans Bekannelser), For Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, Bohemian Rhapsody
