Reginald Mobley - Because - VAN Magazine

In 2023, countertenor Reginald Mobley’s performance of “Motherless Child,” arranged by Baptiste Trotignon, is also a sign of our times. Trotignon’s piano accompaniment is anxious, the left hand playing an endless rhythm like a racing pulse incapable of reaching a resting heart rate ... Mobley connects the dots through to 1966 with “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,”. Gaye’s soul-searing high notes are smoothed out into a sultry velvet in Mobley’s delivery, equal parts Gaye and Jessica Rabbit.
