The Saxophone and the Singer!
From Lester and Billie, Getz and Gilberto, Coltrane and Hartman to Cannonball and Nancy, wise saxophonists have always embraced and pursued a close musical association with singers.
Is it because of the focus that the vocalist brings to the delivery of a song? Is it because the saxophone is so uniquely ‘vocal’, and expressively compatible with the voice?
What strategies do singers use that saxophonists need to be aware of? How do the best artists on saxophone exploit the context and opportunities that accompanying and soloing with a singer provide?
Julian will pick some classic tracks, identifying and demonstrating how the phrasing and tonal choices of the saxophonist are essential to a simpatico relationship that courses through the veins of the jazz tradition.
