He is widely known for performing and recording regularly as an unaccompanied solo vocal artist. He has frequently collaborated with other artists from both the jazz and classical scenes.

McFerrin has also worked in collaboration with instrumentalists, including the pianists Chick CoreaHerbie Hancock, and Joe Zawinul, the drummer Tony Williams, and the cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
