Take 6 - Sweet Georgia Brown

The question is, can this remake of the Harlem Globetrotter’s theme song take an active part in my life in 2008? I thought not the first few times, but as these voices melded and the bass singer touched my soul upon subsequent listens, I have made the commitment to add this song to my permanent eartaste collection. These guys have always amazed me with the harmonies they are able to grasp from human voices. The shoutout is Straighten Up and Fly Right with some sweet spices added on top of these a cappella dudes by George Benson, who wisely chooses not to intrude on the voices but simply sprinkle some sweetness.
