posticon What if Jon Lord had.......


...."Scat-sang" to his own organ solos?

Now that I'd have paid triple the price of admission to have seen. Especially for the "Deep Purple In Concert" or "Made In Japan" performances.

Come to think of it, his hero Jimmy Smith did a bit of that, but that was jazz music-- a more acceptable medium for scat singing.

Still it would have been interesting.

Dunno what scat-singing is.

Something close to what the keyboard player of The Doors did, when Morrison passed out? (Singing the complete show(s), in the lack of a singer.

Scat-singing is when a (usually jazz) singer does a vocal solo as though their voice was a solo instrument, but they are just making up silly syllabic phrases with various long and short vowel sounds to accentuate their point and carry the tune. There are no discernable words that make sense...and some people can't stand it. You either like it or you don't.

An example of it might be the phrasing:

"Scooby doo bahh bop dah bee da di di-di-di-di-dooooo wahhhhh"

Or something like that.

The Manhattan Transfer does a bit of it. Short "I" vowel sounds lend themselves to scatting in 1/16th notes....so on and so forth.

My original thought being, could you imagine Jon Lord scat singing to the Mandrake Root organ solo at the same time that he was playing it on the Hammond? Or doing a "call and response" with himself.....organ then scat back and forth. And then get Blackers in there doing the same. All the while, Ian G. throwing in some wailing high notes to round it out.

Now that would have been fun to hear.

LOL...it would have been funny if he ran a mic through the marshall, and did that weird thing Ian Anderson did with the flute!

George Benson is a master at doing that. Sometimes Gillan does it when Morse or Blackmore is soloing.

In my eyes it wouldn't fit for Purple's songs. The first scatter I ever payed attention in my life was John Larkin (Scatman John).

Scatting is only a useful "accent" for jazz.

If you want to listen how it sounds, here comes a link.

Scat-music!
This is a site containing midi-sequences of music written by Scatman John.
