Three Mo' Tenors

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Three Mo? Tenors are Rodrick Dixon, Thomas Young, and Victor Trent Cook, a trio of African-American singers whose repertoire throws its willing arms around an eclectic musical world. They hit on R&B (?Let the Good Times Roll,? a ?Philly soul? medley) , jazz (A Duke Ellington medley, ?Twisted,? ?Minnnie the Moocher?), traditional gospel fare, and for good measure a touch of opera (?La donna ? mobile,? ?Ah ! Mes amis,? ?Nessun dorma?), among other idioms. Each man is a powerhouse vocalist ready, willing, and able to tear the roof off the house. Together they kick up a mighty storm of song, charging this live recording with infectious enthusiasm. Mixing humor, drama, ...

Together they kick up a mighty storm of song, charging this live recording with infectious enthusiasm. Mixing humor, drama, and virtuosity, the trio revels in the pure joy of singing. Mighty tenors these three may be, but as a unit they stand in no one’s shadow.
All Music Guide - Stacia Proefrock
A play upon the popularity of the original Three Tenors tour, this live recording attempts to document a tribute to both the classically trained voice and the African American experience. Because of its title, the CD almost had to begin with a classic opera piece like "La Donna È Mobile," but the arias are not where these musicians shine. Rather, it is the pop and jazz standards that show up later in the album that really show off the talent of these vocalists (though their performance of "Nessun Dorma" is pretty successful). The disc ranges stylistically from pop vocal to blues to gospel, along with its obligatory classical songs, but one of the most intriguing songs is their Christmas medley, "Have You Heard About the Baby/Glory to the Newborn King." The album closes with a great gospel medley that shows off the power of those classically trained voices better than any aria could, while making a nice tribute to a musical style that throughout history has been an integral part of African American culture.

    Amazing and versatile

    These guys are amazing! Their voices are powerful, beautiful, awe-inspiring. . .the material is eclectic, ranging from jazz to gospel to traditional to opera . . .there is even a medley that includes a version of Gladys Knight and the Pips "Midnight Train to Georgia" - without the Gladys Knight part. . .the guys are the Pips, and you can sing along and be Gladys! Fun. I've been a fan of the song 'Twisted' since I first heard Joni Mitchell sing it in the seventies, and the version here does not disappoint. Again, fun. The whole cd is fun, high energy, a real performance that takes you along for the ride. . .You'll be glad you are strapped in.

    Flat out fantastic

    I recently ran across this cd and bought it after listening to a bit of it. Once I put it in my car's cd player, I was blown away. It starts out wonderfully and only gets better. This is an incredible showcase for three incredibly talented singers. They go from once style to another effortlessly. "Make Them Hear You" sent chills through me, the singer has such a powerful voice. They are so much better than any of these contrived groups (Il Divo, etc.)

    Best Tenors!

    If you have not seen "Three Mo' Tenors" perform, you have missed a treat! I was fortunate to see a show last night in Columbus, GA. This city will never be the same!

    Three Mo' ''Awsome'' Tenors

    These 3 gentlemen are the BEST. It is very rare that you find a singer, let alone 3, that can sing 7 different styles of music flawlessly. They move from one style to another without even thinking about it. I love opera, jazz, R&B, & gospel. You get them all on one CD!!!

    The Greatest

    The group, Three Mo'Tenor, is the Greatest Group of All Times. I first saw this group on public televison and I was impressed with their vocal styles. I believe that everyone should go out and buy a copy of the c.d. This group is an inspiration to those who are looking for some real music. I will continue to spread the word about this group.

    Mo'Tenors, I say ''Go Tenors''

    I was spell bound from beginning to end. Never have I heard such clarity of voice, pitch and tonality. The range of vocal expression and musical numbers will keep you completely encapsulated from beginning to end. I judge what I hear by the my term the ''prickle effect'' I got it. What more can I say. I loved it.

    Brilliant

    I saw this performance last night on KBTC public TV and it was awesome. These guys took me on a journey without ever leaving the house. Their range, versatility and powerful voices and harmonies are fantastic. I went from shaking, moving and groving to tears of joy brought up from the depths of my soul. The only thing that would have made it better is if I had been there. My mission: Find out if a performance is comming to my area, buy the cd/vhs tapes and savor all the eargasms it provided.

    They Too Sing, America!

    This brilliant compilation of classical and American standards is fabulously--and seamlessly--bound together by three of the richest, most amazing voices I've heard in quite some time. These three gentlemen uphold the vocal and technical standards of the world's great masters. Yet, they distinquish themselves by the bravado with which they unfold each tune. Their ''familiarity'' with each song evokes in one the emotional equivalent of a warm-- sometimes intimate, sometimes pure, sometimes flirtatious--embrace. The Master ''Mo-s''' refreshingly harmonious renditions of each song, give you not the elaborate production score you typically get at the Met (and I LOVE opera), but rather the passion- heavy, sing-along, ''every man's'' version that the cabbie who drives you home from the Met also appreciates. (Just listen to ''Nessun Dorma,'' and 'Make them Hear You,'' and you'll agree!) If musical notes were, in fact, words, ''Three Mo' Tenors'' would be an unquestionable page turner. If songs were food, 3Mo would be a gourmand's smorgasboard! The ''Three Tenors'' would do well to adopt ''Mo''' blues, gospel and ''plain-old-funky-swing'' into their repertoire. However, history and tradition excluded them from such beneficence. They are, of course, brilliant in their own artistic right. Yet, now, because of these three shining heralds, Mo' of the world now knows, as I have all of my life, there's simply ''Mo'' to it than that!

    Great singing!

    These three gentlemen have awesome voices, and they show a lot of heart and soul too. They handle a variety of musical genres, and treat them all with respect. My only slight quibble is with the production--it's live so there are the production imperfections you might expect. But as for the performers themselves: enthusiastic 5 stars!

    Outstanding

    Truly remarkable voices with harmony second to none. Versatility from gospel to opera to jazz is effortless and extraordinary.
