Re: Miss the Real KT
Love the idea of "the fourth voice"! I once heard Rick Dougherty refer to it as the "Ensemble Sound", three voices singing as one. I've experienced it in 2 groups I've sung with, and it's truly exhilarating!!
I have had interest in harmony and harmony groups since I was a kid. The best harmony groups, for instance, a trio, have three individual voices of course, but when they sing in harmony together there is a fourth voice. NBD had it, NBJ had and quite a few other known groups. This latest KT does not have a fourth voice, it just sounds like three individual guys. If anyone listening to them can't hear this they are tone deaf. and they have no discrimination about singing and music, and probably most people don't notice it
I really miss the real Kingston Trio.
