Abstract (type = abstract)
This thesis illustrates Betty Carter’s musical development as a jazz vocalist beginning in the bebop era to her untimely passing in 1998, her essential impact on vocal jazz, her accomplishments, and extraordinary legacy. The thesis also outlines a brief history of vocal jazz with a music collection and jazz vocalist classification and the aesthetic elements of “the voice” with regards to improvisation and artistic confidence. The objective of this aspect will provide a practical understanding of vocal styling and individuality, while emphasizing Betty Carter’s methodical “vocally instrumental” approach to jazz. Such other features of this thesis contain contemporary ideas and perceptions on new jazz studies to highlight the expansion of women’s contributions to jazz in contrast to the historical tradition of jazz history. In addition, a transcription of one of Carter’s scat solos with phonetic spellings of scat syllables is included.
