This research investigate how arrangers can use vocals as an addition to their horn arrangements. Through experimenting and literature research I will explore the role a voice can have as an autonomous part in a horn section with 2 other horns.
In this research I ask myself the question: How can I use voice to complement 3 part horn arrangements?
Using the most common horns in jazz, I make groupings of 2 horns paired up with the voice based on instrument information and range. We will play in different devisions and explore the influence that vowels will have on blending, opting for a homogeneous sound, where the voice is adopted in the section.
