And the results? 1) He used subharmonics in a way that very few people can. Other than Tuvan Throat Singers, that is: (Also, listen for the subtle melody that accompanies the low-throated growl in this clip). That subharmonic vibration also helped give him his "growl," which he used quite frequently. 2) His vocals chords simply moved faster than those of most people. 3) It's been widely reported that Mercury could sing through 4 octaves, but this study could not back that up; at 12 semitones per octave, that would be 48 semitones.

Just listen to his amazing scat-style singing in the "isolated vocals" version of "Under Pressure" in the clip below, which Mercury's band Queen recorded with another great vocalist, David Bowie.

Still, in case there was ever any doubt, new analysis of both Mercury’s singing and speaking voices has shed fresh light on just how special his pipes really were. A group of Austrian, Czech, and Swedish researchers conducted the research, the results of which were published on Friday in Logopedics Phoniatrics Vocology (via AlphaGalileo). While they couldn’t confirm the long-held belief that Mercury’s range spanned four full octaves, they did discover some interesting tidbits about the expanse of his voice. For one, despite being known largely as a tenor, he was more likely a baritone. They based this assumption off analysis of six interviews that revealed a median speaking fundamental frequency of 117.3 Hz. The Revenant OST - The End.

20 Albums To Begin A Journey into Jazz

It's no good people starting to listen to jazz on the margins; it's like giving a ten year old, Tolstoy's 'War & Peace' to read, chances are they will not make it past the first page. There are some jazz fans that can be awfully snooty about the music they love, they almost try to turn it into a club that refuses to let in new members.

So we decided to put together a list of the 20 albums to start your collection with. Every one is a brilliant record and no discerning jazz fan would turn their nose up at any one of them. So our list is both credible and accessible. It includes albums like Miles Davis's, Kind of Blue, Bill Evan's, Waltz For Debby and John Coltrane's, Blue Train; all three consistently make the list of the most important jazz albums ever.
