“SONG STYLIZING FOR JAZZ VOCALISTS”

A WORKSHOP WITH WORLD-RENOWNED JAZZ SINGER MARY STALLINGS

 

Presented in association with the Madison Music Collective

When:  Thursday evening, May 31, 2012, Workshop from 6:00-8:00 PM, with an optional vocal showcase from 8:00-9:00 PM

 

Where:  Edgewater Hotel,Wisconsin Avenue atLangdon Street, in DowntownMadison

 

Program Description:  This workshop is aimed at helping vocalists set a mood, tell a story, and shape phrases, and generally work toward developing their own unique sound.  The workshop will be facilitated by Laurie Lang, jazz bassist and Director of the Madison-based Improvisational Music Workshop. Following introductory remarks by Mary Stallings and Ms. Lang, the program will proceed through three segments.

  1. The workshop will begin with a “group sing” of “Night Mist Blues” (Ahmad Jamal, composer), which appears on Ms. Stallings’ new CD, “Don’t Look Back” (High Note Records, 2012).  All participants will be expected to learn this song in advance and to be fully prepared for a jam on it.
  2. The “group sing” will be followed by a “master class” in which Ms. Stallings demonstrates through her singing (and with support from her pianist, David Udolf) the principles, characteristics, and practices of jazz vocal styles.  During this segment, each participant (if they wish) will sing a song of their choosing and receive feedback from Ms. Stallings on how to further stylize their approach.  Participants choosing to sing in this segment will be expected to provide a chart or music in their key for the pianist to accompany them.
  3. The workshop will conclude with an optional vocal showcase in the Edgewater’s Cove Lounge that’s open to friends, family members, and the general public, at which participants can perform their workshop song (and perhaps one additional song).

Registration Fee:  $50.00, payable in advance

Registration Deadline:  Thursday, May 24, 2012

Registration Limit:  To maximize personal attention to participants, registration will be limited to a maximum of 16 registrants. Participants will be selected on a first-come basis, with confirmations being sent immediately upon receipt of the registration form and fee payment.
