HERE'S THE VOCAL JAZZ AUDITION INFORMATION 2018-19


Auditions will be held during the week of June 11th. Students are asked to sign up for an audition appointment with Ms. Russell. The audition song is Orange Coloured Sky, using this karaoke version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOvv3zj9sQ4

You may like to refer to the actual Natalie Cole version, when practising:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9W2hOr-CB4

Here's an inspiration for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wHNySlNyuM

You will be using a microphone, and are encouraged to "make this song YOUR OWN" i.e. add melodic embellishments; jazzify the song in your own way; add some improvisation - using the text or with scat syllables; and, remember really PERFORM the song by moving to the music and completely engaging in the tune. Sing from memory, and if you forget the lyrics, take a page from Ella Fitzgerald's book, and scat or improvise your way through until you remember. Here's some inspiration on that:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI5fU6ZbyaA Most of all, have fun.

Here are the lyrics:
Natalie Cole – Orange Colored Sky Lyrics
I was walking along, minding my business,
When out of the orange colored sky,
Flash, bam, alacazam, Wonderful you came by.
.
I was humming a tune, drinking in sunshine,
When out of that orange colored view
Wham, bam, alacazam, I got a look at you.
.
One look and I yelled timber
Watch out for flying glass.
Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out
I went into a spin and I started to shout
I've been hit, This is it, this is it.
.
I was walking along minding my business
When love came and hit me in the eye
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Out of the orange colored sky
.
Well, one look and I yelled timber
Watch out for flying glass.
Cause the ceiling fell in and the bottom fell out
I went into a spin and I started to shout
I've been hit, This is it, this is it.
.
I was walking along minding my business
When love came and hit me in the eye
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Out of the orange colored, purple stripes,
Pretty green polka-dot sky
Flash, bam, alacazam,
Went the sky
Songwriters: MILTON DELUGG, WILLIE STEIN
