All great songs share a common thread: a strong lyric. Lyrics call us to war or invite us to bed, celebrate love or mourn its loss. The best ones remind the listener of the shared human experience within the personal experience, and it is the singer's job to make the connections palpable. Join Laurel Massé (pictured below), founding member of Manhattan Transfer, in an exploration of this often-neglected aspect of jazz singing, and discover how to improvise within the framework of the song.
