Bobby bland that did it getting used to the blues - Bobby Blue Bland | 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.


Bland called it a "squall" — the choked, gospel-inspired near-scream that became his trademark. "I got the idea from Rev. Franklin, Aretha's father," Bland told Rolling Stone . "I had to work with that a long time before I got it to perfection." But Bland, whose admirers range from Van Morrison to Jay-Z, was more than a blues shouter — on the quieter moments of signature tunes such as "I Pity the Fool" and "Turn On Your Love Light," he could just as easily adopt a smooth, uptown croon, complete with elegant vibrato, like his early hero Nat "King" Cole. "If I could sing like Bobby Bland," said his longtime collaborator . King, "I'd be a happy man." Adds Gregg Allman, "It's a one-of-a-kind voice — I wonder how many people tore up their throats trying to imitate that shout."
