This is a little experiment in improvisation. I threw a bunch of electricc piano loops up and only listened to enough of them to figure out that it would probably sound okay. Didn't listen to them all, and had no real sense of where they were going. I wanted this to be a real improvisation. Next I threw some bass in, starting and stopping it on a whim; again, without listening. I repeated that with drums.

Finally, I closed my eyes and just started singing. What you hear is the improvisational track -- no lyrics written (rather obvious), no melody in my head, just letting the music take me wherever it wanted.

The style is jazz fusion, something I don't know much about so the vocals probably aren't very fusionish.

Anyway, I thought I'd share my little experiment -- all done in less than half an hour (I did have to adjust a couple of levels afterward, as they were peaking) and done purely for the love of improvisational singing. I hope you enjoy it!

Again, I think you have a great jazz voice. You can sing on top of construction noises and it would come out music! That is not to say what you created here isn't musical, it is! It's great actually. I'm just constantly wowed by your singing.

Flows effortlessly, amazingly, inspiringly. Your voice has this great Ella Fitzgerald/Diane Schuur tonality about it that gives me goosebumps. Awesome!

Your style reminds me of Nina Simone or Ella Fitzgerald. Two favorites. Yours is a strong addition to their legacy.
