Take your group on a swinging trip down Bourbon Street in the city of jazz: New Orleans! If you are just getting starting singing vocal jazz with your group, this is an excellent choice, and those groups with more experience will have this chart performance-ready with a minimum of rehearsal time. The focus is on ensemble singing, so you can really zero in on style and phrasing. The performance/accompaniment CD features the great GOLD COMPANY (Steve Zegree's vocal jazz group at Western Michigan University) and a kickin' big band accompaniment. Also be sure to check out Steve's new book THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO TEACHING VOCAL JAZZ. It's written for the choral director with little or no experience in jazz and is a practical easy-to-read resource.
