Here's a personal compilation of ultra-hip vocalese-jazz recordings by Estonian group Collage culled from their impossible-to-find Russian Melodiya albums from the seventies. Legendary stuff this, impossible to adequately put into words and incomparable in form & delivery to anything I can immediately think of. Try Estonian Novi Singers & you'll have some idea!

This seven-piece consists of three female vocalists who sound like angels and four male musicians. Together they perform an incredible combination of jazzy, classical folk tunes and whilst many of the songs have an ethereal hymnal quality, they all come together to forge a timeless and irresistable groove!

Absolutely essential...
