Blues/Jazz - Guide to singing styles and music genre

藍調/爵士 - 歌唱風格和音樂類型指南

There are so many different singing styles and genres out there — how do you keep track of them? What are the best vocal exercises for singers of each genre? Here is the guide !

The blues were born in the American south from the spirituals of slaves and the call-and-response music of the Southern church. Think of jazz as its slightly more sophisticated child who never forgot its roots. Jazz singing is characterized by clear, “speech level” singing and distinct consonants, while blues singing has a rough or rootsy edge to it, sometimes with a natural Southern accent.

Tips & Vocal Exercises for Blues and Jazz Singers
  • You can’t sing the blues and jazz right without knowing its history, in your mind and in your heart. Watch Ken Burns’ Jazz documentary and the Thelonious Monk documentary, “Straight, No Chaser.”

  • Experiment with different vocal sounds, like pitch slides and scatting.

  • Study up on your music theory, especially your chromatic scales.

Famous singers: Cassandra Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong

世界上有很多不同的歌唱風格和流派,你如何追崇它們? 不同音樂風格的歌手又應該如何去練習呢?想知道的話請繼續看下去吧!

布魯斯出生在美國南部,來自奴隸的精神和南方教會的呼喚和回應音樂。布魯斯是個把爵士樂看作是一個從未忘記其根源的稍微複雜的孩子。 爵士樂演唱的特點是清晰,“語音水平”的歌聲和獨特的輔音,而布魯斯唱歌有一個粗糙或根源的邊緣,有時具有自然的南方口音。


  • 在不了解其歷史,思想和心靈的情況下,你無法正確地演唱布魯斯和爵士樂。 觀看Ken Burns的爵士紀錄片和Thelonious Monk紀錄片“Straight,No Chaser”。

  • 嘗試不同的聲音,如音調滑動和散射。

  • 研究你的音樂理論,特別是你的音階。

著名歌手:Cassandra Wilson,Sarah Vaughan,Louis Armstrong
