Live From Our Living Rooms - Creativity Summit Workshop
THE 2ND TIME AROUND: A toolkit for reinterpreting jazz standards on the second chorus.
Jazz singers - what do you usually do after laying down the classic melody of a beloved standard? No need to launch into a scat solo like a horn player! The old school approach is to use the lyric to reinterpret the melody, harmony and rhythm of the tune and express your unique perspective. We'll demonstrate different devices that will help you learn to improvise on the structure of the tune using the language of jazz. The 2nd chorus is your time to shine as a SINGER.
$30 - a percentage of the proceeds go to support NYC jazz artists who've lost income due to Covid-19 pandemic
