Pop UnitAdded 3/24/17 Homework is due in one week, 3/31/17I will catch this site up to speed with all the handouts until now. Putting that aside, here are the videos I've logged for you to watch. They are a perfect example of the big-band/swing era. Please listen to the songs and fill out your sheets accordingly. Name the song you're listening to, and the performing artist. Give one overall comment: ex. I love this song. It speaks to me in a special way. The pros and cons section you need to give me a critique using some of the things we have spoken about in class. Ex: I liked the hook, it had a real distinctive sound. Or: For such a large ensemble the sound sure wasn't full and exciting. You can address the talent, the style, fusion, improvisation, pitch with a singer, the head, the hook, the harmony, duets, trios, whatever you remember us discussing at some point in class.I've given you 10...choose 6.Enjoy!7. Cab Calloway, Minnie the Moocher (from the Blues Brothers, 1980)
10. Tito Puente, Sheila E and Pete Escovedo, Jam (improvising) on the timbales! Just watch this one! I'm posting it because of Sheila E, in my opinion, the greatest timbale player! Tito is the King, but she is the Queen!!
