As we look at Michael Jackson’s isolated vocals from “Billie Jean” we can see from the recording how he truly was the one creating all the energy for the track.
This is vastly different from what we’ve been seeing in other isolated tracks where the band was what really helped to drive the power and energy behind the sound.
What other artists can you think of that had a similar ability to drive a track rhythmically, all on their own? Let me know in the comments!
In this video I’ll explore the type of equipment used for the recording and how it impacted Michael’s sound. We’ll also explore how he used phrasing and his licks to convey emotion and create his unique style.
