MUSIC MONDAY: Vocalese & Scat

Vocalese was born in 1968 when Eddie Jefferson took this famous recording of Body and Soul by Coleman Hawkins from 1939…

… and added his own lyrics to it:

Another comparison! Check out Count Basie’s Blee Blop Blues (1952)…

… and compare it to The Manhattan Transfer’s version from their album, ‘Vocalese’ (1985)

WATCH: Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme explain jazz through an improvised scat singing demonstration during a televised awards show.

BONUS: The Manhattan Transfer also messed around with Eddie Jefferson’s vocalese for Body and Soul, and in such a beautiful way!
