    This would be perfect for the first four notes of "In the Mood," for example or the theme from "Wild, Wild, West." The use of these is more instinctive than notated. The job of the lead player is to interpret the notated music in such a manner and the job of the section player is to listen to and match the lead player. The high notes are just an added bonus for playing the lead book.

    Scat singing gives the proper articulation for lines in jazz. Both written and improvised. ONLY classical people would say you shouldn't stop a note with the tongue-in the rest of the music world that's just plain crazy. (Barbara Butler and I used to argue about that. )Not just in the jazz but also latin and funk worlds, much more articulation is needed to bring out the proper rhythmic approach. Deliniating the rhythmic propulsion of a line is much more important in many non-classical styles.
