May 25, 2019 - The Sounds of Vocalese

One of the cornerstones of jazz music is improvisation. When you think of songs like Body and Soul, you think of the solo performed by Coleman Hawkins. But what if you took that same solo and added lyrics? Join host Jay Daniels as we feature the sounds of vocalese with performances by Allan Harris, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, and Bob Dorough.
