America s Greatest Jazz-Pop Singers




Jazz singing can be defined by the instrumental approach to the voice, where the singer can match the instruments in their stylistic approach to the lyrics, improvised or otherwise, or through scat singing; that is, the use of nonsensical meaningless non-morphemic syllables to imitate the sound of instruments. Crooner is an American epithet given to a male singer of 1920s to 1960s pop standards, mostly from the Great American Songbook. “Harvey Sheldon’s latest book helps us all to remember the greats of today and yesterday. It is unfortunate but true that “history is only what gets saved.” Fortunately, the legacy of all those mentioned in this endeavor will now live into the future. America’s Greatest Jazz and Pop Singers by my friend Harvey Sheldon will make sure that these icons will never be forgotten. They can be remembered, cherished and praised. History survives through this journal. Harvey, we all thank you for saving it.”
