best use of RK using his voice as a instrument

This is a discussion on best use of RK using his voice as a instrument within the R. Kelly Music Chat forums, part of the R. Kelly Discussion category; good example to me is "it's your birthday" he did that vocal keyboard flute solo and a buddy of mine ...

    Default best use of RK using his voice as a instrument

    good example to me is "it's your birthday" he did that vocal keyboard flute solo and a buddy of mine was really impressed with that vocal solo and dude was like kellz did that with his voice?

    then "just because" with Nona Gaye he did that birdy solo churp and it was cold.

    any others come to mind?

    he has that rare gift to pull that off imo.

    I used this as an example of both bass, and him using Marvin Gaye's "Woo" sound but yet again 'Loveland' springs to mind. The vocal intro, is that what you would also call a 'vocal keyboard'? Im not sure but its definitely super tight use of his vocals.

    Also how about the end of 'Radio Message', that "Pleeeaasseee" has an instrumental feel about it?

    Great thread, Maxxx!

    Loveland and It's Your Birthday are great examples. I'll have to think of som more. I don't think I've heard the song with Nona Gaye. I'll have to listen.

    How about the "Wee-ooo, wee-ooo" sound he makes on 'So Sexy Chapter II' where he is imitating the sound of a bed creaking? I like that one. Hidden Content
