Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte har varit att öka förståelsen för röstliga uttryck i jazzmusik, med fokus på hur samspelet mellan ord och musik verkar i skivinspelningar med utvalda sångerskor. Utifrån en hermeneutisk ansats har fem skivinspelningar med fem svenska kvinnliga jazzsångerskor, samtliga utsedda till Jazz i Sverige-artister, beskrivits och tolkats ur ett vokalpedagogiskt perspektiv. I förhållande till jazzsångtraditionen visade sig två av studiens sångerskor på olika vis utmana vokala konventioner. Studiens resultat indikerar att utbildning stärkt jazzsångerskor så att de kan agera i flera roller i ensembler, också genom vokal improvisation och som kompositörer. Det framgick att samtliga sångerskor i studien framfört engelskspråkiga texter som främst behandlat kärleksmotiv. I detaljstudier av sångerskornas interpretation av texter, både egnas och andras, framstod komplexiteten i deras vokala framställning. Resultaten visar att texter kan fylla olika funktion i musikaliskt samspel, samt pekar på att studiet av inspelade röster kan vara ett redskap i undervisningen, både för jazzsånglärare och ensemblelärare.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to enhance the understanding of voice expression in jazz music, focusing on the interplay between words and music in recordings of selected singers. From a hermeneutic approach five recordings of different Swedish female jazz singers, all selected as Jazz in Sweden- artists, has been described and interpreted from a vocal pedagogical perspective. In relation to the jazz vocal tradition it turned out that two of the singers in different ways challenged the conventions of jazz singing. Study findings indicate that education strengthened female jazz singers to find different roles in their interaction with other musicians in the ensemble, also through vocal improvisation and as composers. All singers in the study expressed themselves through lyrics in English that mainly dealt with love motifs. In detailed analysis of the songs and the singers interpretations of lyrics the complexity of the singers vocal production was shown. The study shows how lyrics for the singer can fulfill different functions in the musical interplay, and also implies that studies of recorded voices can be an educational tool, for both jazz vocal teachers as well as for ensemble teachers.
