rich r Vocal embellishment - guidelines? (31) RE: Vocal embellishment - guidelines? 19 Feb 99


I recently stumbled on some Richard Dyer-Bennet recordings in a library. He excelled in incorporating various embellishments in all manner of traditional songs and ballads. His snort/squeal on "Little Pig" is probably the best I have ever heard because it fits so tightly into the song itself. When the word vibrato is mentioned my mind always drifts back to high school and the Kingston Trio. Some folks I sang with always mockingly referred to John "Machine Gun" Stewart, but it never kept me from enjoying his music.
