Best known for his solo performances, vocalist and conductor Bobby McFerrin returns to his musical roots in two ways for his latest album, Spirityouall. The record features an all-star jazz ensemble including Grammy Award-winning bassist Esperanza Spalding. But McFerrin also interprets -- in his own endlessly joyous style -- the Americana songs he grew up with. While well-known tunes like "Swing Low" and "Whole World" could easily feel stale, through McFerrin's ever-inventive musical prism, these songs feel reinvigorated and fresh.

Watch McFerrin and an all-star band perform "Joshua" in the Soundcheck studio.
