Holiday went on to record with jazz pianist Teddy Wilson in 1935. That same year, she appeared with jazz pianist, Duke Ellington, in the film Symphony in Black. She began working with jazz tenor saxophonist, Lester Young in 1936 who gave her her nickname “Lady Day”. They became very close friends and even lived with Billie and her mother Sadie for a period of time. She joined jazz pianist, Count Basie in 1937 and clarinetist, Artie Shaw in 1938.
He ends up with the choir again but even longer than the other ones but with the same lyrics: "I wish they all could be California girls". This song has a really notable mood which gives it a chill environment. As the mood, the lyrics are also chill to hear, understand, and enjoy because they are not many words per minute, meaning that the words are not to tight. In other words, the lyrics and the mood are really compatible because they both bring a good vibe to the song, although the mood is more sophisticated than the lyrics. The instruments in the song go faster than each word or phrase the singer
While in New York, Armstrong made dozens of records as a sideman, creating inspirational jazz and backup singing for many blues singers. Moreover, he had records as a soloist including "Cornet Chop Suey" and "Potato Head Blues." These solos changed jazz history, by incorporating daring rhythm choices, swing and high notes on cornet(Source B). Furthermore, in 1926, Armstrong finally switched from the cornet to the trumpet. After 1926, Louis became more and more famous and broke more and more barriers through his music.
When we think of Old Hollywood musicals, what comes to mind? One of the best musical classics is the 1952 Singin’ in the Rain movie which showcase characters in a transitional environment. Now, La La Land brings us two main characters, Mia and Sebastian, on the verge of a drastic transition. Both characters go through a transformation that at the end brings them a bittersweet joy to their lives. We will examine the writer’s decisions for the dialogue used while taking note of specific leading scenes.
Louis Armstrong shaping scat singing to make it achieve posterity Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) is surely one of the most famous and incredible jazz singer and trumpet player. He influenced widely, and still does, jazz music. But there is something that only jazz specialists or some aficionados know: he actually reinvented a brand new genre of vocal jazz, the scat singing. And I said “reinvented” on purpose. Indeed, though Louis Armstrong 's recording Heebie Jeebies in 1926 is often cited as the first song to use scatting, there are some earlier examples of artists ' pieces of work that could be considered as premises of scat singing.
He moved permanently to New York in 1943. In 1946, Armstrong made an appearance in the film "New Orleans," in which he performed works from the repertoire of classical jazz. In 1947, Armstrong cut his band to six instruments (trombone, clarinet, bass, piano and drums), thus returning to the Dixieland style that made him famous early in his career. This group was called All Stars. During this new stage with the band, he made countless recordings and appeared in film productions on several
I viewed Diahann Carroll’s performance of a heartfelt love song, “The Music That Makes Me Dance” from Funny Girl. The song is written by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill. Carroll’s recording was made in 1968, four years after the role of Fanny Brice had been made famous by Barbra Streisand. I view Carroll as a confident artist for putting this song out into the world after such a groundbreaking, well known performance of it circulated. All of this being said, her performance was spectacular and showed why she belonged to hold a spot in our memories.
Louis music scene, and in 1952 he formed the Sir John Trio with pianist and band leader Johnnie Johnson and drummer Eddie Hardy. The connection with Johnson would be a lasting one, and the influence of the pianist's boogie style would become evident in Berry's guitar playing. Berry had a knack for pleasing the crowd, and the band eventually changed its name to The Chuck Berry Trio. The band's repertoire included the blues, ballads, and a number of "black hillbilly" songs that jokingly parodied the country music popular to the city's white audiences. While the trio's hillbilly songs initially provoked laughter, they became popular dance tunes among the predominantly black club-goers.
This lighthearted tale of overcoming adversity and the power of friendship uses its superb music score, dialogue, and color to give audiences a full movie experience in just 64 minutes. However, if released now, its references to prevalent problems in 1940s America would make the film quite controversial. The film features music in almost every scene, both with lyrics and without. This music, by Frank Churchill and Oliver Wallace with lyrics of original songs by Ned Washington, has an integral role in the perception of the film. From the opening credits of the film, the music indicates that the film is about a comedic circus.
Armstrong, himself, was a comedian, and would push the boundaries of the accepted forms of jazz and pop music. At one time, he invented “scat” while singing in the song “Heebie Jeebies”; Armstrong claimed that he dropped the lyric sheet, and when the time came for him to sing, he sang horn-like nonsense syllables instead. Armstrong was also a deft interpreter of lyrics and was a masterful singer, and always wanted to his entertain his audience; in the end, he found great success with his pop hits despite the opinions of critics who at that time believed that he should play music with a more serious
