Gary Walth : Jazz Warm-ups and Vocalises

Review: Here's a perfect set of warm-ups for the vocal jazz ensemble that's designed to enhance and stimulate the growth of each member's vocal and choral ability. Thinking of the warm-up as a "mini voice lesson," you can reinforce concepts with consistent encouragement, criticism, problem-solving and praise. This practical volume will help the conductor provide purposeful leadership and develop artistry in each individual through exercises that build styles such as Swing, Latin and Rock using solfege and scat syllables as well as tone and blend in ballad style. Each exercise includes a notated keyboard accompaniment with multiple modulations and professional recordings of a rhythm section and singers performing each drill on the enclosed CD.

Chapters: Swing with Scat Syllables, Latin feel with solfrege, Moderate swing with scat, Rock style, Chordial ballad, Moderate swing, Samba with with solfrege syllables, Warm-up exercises
