Check Out Frank Ocean’s Mesmerizing Meander Along “Moon River”

Feb 16th, 2018 in Music

Frank Ocean’s indelible music can creep up on you like, well, a moon rising over a river.  First you’re engrossed by the enlightening hues of his vocals, followed by the shimmering effects thereon. It’s a winning package repeatedly borne out on his recordings. This week Ocean released (on Valentine’s Day) his winsome, yet world-weary, take on the moody chestnut Moon River written by the masterful Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer. The song was originally heard in the sad, sad film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and made most famous by crooner Andy Williams. Check out Ocean’s superb cover of the song below, followed by the song’s breathy cover by Audrey Hepburn in the movie, and Williams’ worthy take. The song has been covered by countless artists, but Ocean’s takes it to the heavens.
