C, E-flat and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don't
serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between
them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat. F
comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.

D comes in and heads for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a
second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this
relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding
at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're the seventh minor I've
found in this bar tonight."

E-Flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely
shined shoes. The bartender says, "you're looking sharp tonight. Come on
in, this could be a major development." Sure enough, E-flat soon takes
off his suit and everything else, and is au natural.

Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. C
is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a
minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale
correctional facility.

Jazz Articulation

Posted on December 2, 2009 at 3:55pm 10 Comments

A hundred years ago, when I was young, they used to teach jazz articulation with vocal syllables. Each type of articulation had a very specific syllable. I sort of remember, but don't. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
