The daughter of a friend sent us a note, under the momentarily alarming subject heading "K***** needs help."
I had some ideas, but thought you guys might have more. Do you?So to first explain the situation, we have some Friday night jam sessions at
the house where we all pick up an instrument and play music. Some really
good musicians are joining us these days. I think it would be really fun to
explore jazz, but I don't know where to start. I'm interested in singing
jazz, but nothing too insane in terms of vocals, something raspy or soft,
soulful. Who should I look too? What would be something easy to start off
with? Your advice and input would be greatly appreciated.
Something breathy, not too far from "speaking voice"...few dynamics, no hateful melisma...
