Vocal Impressions: Hearing Voices, Round Four

Commentator Brian McConnachie has been asking listeners to describe in poetic language their impressions of famous voices.

In his last challenge, he asked listeners to describe the voices of Sean Connery, Bob Dylan, Odetta and Mae West.

McConnachie also offers up four new voices: Mick Jagger, Eleanor Roosevelt, Barry White and Luciano Pavarotti.
