Why this book works: Often we singers get in our own way by thinking too much, trying too hard and by making things too complicated.
This method works for all styles of music - pop, theater, jazz, rock, R&B, gospel and classical. This book simplifies the approach to naturally open and powerful singing and, through the process of letting go, you, the singer - will discover much of what you want from your voice:
• More naturally powerful, consistent, open, beautiful sound and tone • Improved/extended range • Improved pitch accuracy • More breath at your command and more efficient use of breath • Improved ability to transition through break areas with less effort and without loss of tone • More flexibility with which to do more with your voice • More freedom and confidence for free expression through your singing • Exercises which you can directly apply to your songs and to specific problem areas
Packed full of productive and easy exercises, visualizations, cartoons and illustrations to help simplify the thought process and therefore the singer’s approach to technique. This book has helped hundreds, even thousands of students! Humor, Simplicity, Results!
Stories about the Jazz Life, by Hod O'Brien.
“This book is not intended to be a strictly biographical text, but, rather a collection of funny, little incidents and stories I’ve witnessed and heard along my way, on my path as a freelance jazz musician over the past 60 years of my professional life.
It’s intended mostly for fans of mine, whomever and wherever you all are, and fellow musicians, who might be interested in hearing a little bit more about me from another perspective, rather than from just my music and recordings alone. . . . The jazz community is a small, but hip part of the world, of which I’m happy and proud to be a member, and to whom I wish to express my deep gratitude — to those of you in it and interested in my work.”
