"University A Cappella!" makes glee club suddenly seem hip. Longtime
campus favourite Folds combed through 250 video performances of his
songs submitted by college a cappella groups, then travelled around the
country to record his favourites.
It sounds as though everyone involved had a lot of fun. The creative
arrangements showcase Folds' sense of humour and gift for melody in
ways a rock album can't. In lieu of instruments, singers keep the beat
with such phrases as "ba-da-ba-da," "noo-noo-noo-noo,"
"dig-a-duh-bump," "doo-bah-dah-doo," "jim-jim-jim-jim" and - Folds'
favourite, no doubt - "dong-dong."
Fourteen groups contribute, including a marvellous coed high school
ensemble from Newton, Mass., and Folds overdubs his own vocals on two
of the best efforts, "Boxing" and "Effington." There's doo-wop, jazz,
choral music and even frat rock that's R-rated. Kids will be kids.
