Scat-A-Lee-Dat: an inquiry into the art of scat singing
2002 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis treats jazz improvisation from a singer's point of view. The main focus is on scat singing. In order to find methods for understanding or ways of thinking of jazz improvisation and especially scat singing, when teaching, learning and performing, interviews were conducted with four jazz singers who are internationally well known as educators and performers. Using the results of the interviews, some literature on related subjects and personal experience, four important factors were defined and examined. This lead, through a few intermediate steps, to the creation of a model for an optimal improvisation model: the Conjoined Circles Model, describing the interaction of the four factors: Technique, Intuition, Creativity and Trust. Additional conclusions stress the importance of listening in the jazz tradition.
