Beauty and the Beatbox - The Swingle Singers

The Swingle Singers return to disc with a selection of brand new arrangements on this stunning studio album, offering performances to stand along their most memorable to date. The warm, beautiful tone and precision of the group's voices are given a modern edge in the form of the vocal percussion and beatboxing of the world-renowned guest performer Shlomo, and by the Vocal Orchestra.

But cut to a riff on Chick Corea's take on the Rodrigo 'Aranjuez' theme and we're into clever improvisation with multiple variations intrigued by a citrus twist on Dido's Lament beatboxer Shlomo earns his rent in a Bach finale and the whole sounds edgy and almost cool.
London Evening Standard

Their precision is awesome, their technique impeccable.
Classic FM Magazine

"Beauty and the Beatbox ... is a stunning achievement in vocal discipline, cohesion and precision in itself, but beyond that, the beatbox arrangements simply take your breath away. We are hit right between the eyes with a vocal arrangement of Beethoven’s Fifth à la Bee Gees that knocks your socks off too. More traditional fare, such as Dido’s Lament and Albinoni’s Adagio in G Minor, don’t escape, however, and one simply waits in wonder for the beatboxing to make its entry into the already perfect harmonies. Like the Beethoven, tracks like Ravel’s Bolero have the added smile factor – and the final ‘Backbeat’ track is simply astounding."

Antonia Couling

The Singer Magazine - August/September 2008

"Added to the mix this time is vocal percussion where all the sounds come from the voice or parts of the body – it’s extraordinary"  ***
