Interesting, I've never heard the lack of a rhythm section referred to as a cappella. To me, it means music with vocals only. Literally, it means "chapel style" though. Is that what you meant? I'd really like to find that chapel with the big brass section. I might become a more regular church goer.

I just copied a capella from their site.
In a small club in Chicago I saw an African American a capella group. The front man kept saying "Didn't have no instruments on the boat, don't need no instruments now!" That was the headliner and that's all I remember. The opening act was an unknown named Bruce Springsteen. Sat on the front edge of the stage and did an acoustic first set with "the big man" on clarinet and the bassist on tuba. It was sweet.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
