Yes, that is how it is done!
Having only occasionally played with professional vocalists I vividly remember one rather imposing woman say (to me) "A little advice if I may, laddie, get out of the way of the soloist". How embarrassment ....
At least you got to play with a pro!
I love the typical German trumpeter's attitude--we are the soloists, they are just singers.
Another young jazz singer .... Wow, what a big, sassy voice for 16.
That's the way to do it ..... He introduces her and then gives her the full spotlight, even to the point of playing TO her. Some beautiful playing by Chris but it was clearly her moment. I like how the walking bass comes way out front in the mix when Botti starts playing ..... Very cool.
I wonder what Maynard would have told her?
Maynard would not have told her anything. He was a master at listening and opening doors.
I think she can stand on her own 2 feet though:
Listen to Ella and Louis.
I suppose it all depends on whether or not you want the singer to come back. The next time one certain lady jumps up on stage, grabs a mic and requests "Blue Moon" I'm very tempted to "accidentally" play "Blue Room" instead. I mean, it might be different if she would put something in the tip jar.
An embarrassment for her or you? Please say her, as there is more professional (and kinder) ways of giving feedback. This persont is NOT a professional, just a vocalist.
