Jay Clayton's Jazz Vocal Practice Series, Volume 1 CD
Jay Clayton is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, composer, and educator, whose work boldly spans the terrain between jazz and new music.
In 1963 she began her career performing the standards on the vibrant New York music scene. However, she quickly became a prominent part of the free jazz movement.
Her work in these two worlds led to the development of a highly personal, wordless vocabulary later enhanced by her innovative use of electronics.
Now you can take private lessons with Jay with this unique series!
This CD containts two vocal exercises: Vocal Exercise Workouts No. 1 and No. 2: Warm Up and Improve Your "Chops"!
Both sequences of exercises have been designed for warming up, improving breath control, widening your range, and improving accuracy and intonation. Developing a good daily routine of working with the CD will help you develop control, strength, delicacy, and flexibility.
Your goal is to sing anything you feel and hear with ease.
