面试要求:

本科和研究生相同:

1、Standard

A jazz standard of the candidate’s choice, played/sung from memory, medium-up to up-tempo swing 4/4. Candidates (other than drummers) should present the theme and then improvise a substantial solo (min. 2 choruses). Drummers should accompany theme, bass and piano solos and then trade 8s. (Please supply 4 copies of chord chart/lead sheet in concert pitch)

2、(Instrumentalists only) Reworking

A further solo on the same standard (as in 1.) in a different key and tempo/feel, both chosen by the candidate. The candidate may choose to rearrange and/or reharmonise the song, which would be welcome but not compulsory. Drummers are encouraged to be imaginative with their chosen rhythmic setting. (Please supply 4 copies)

3、(Vocalists only) Open choice

A prepared performance of a different tune, which presents an emotional juxtaposition to 1. This component is stylistically open but must display rigorous jazz process, i.e. have a substantially improvised nature. (Please supply 4 copies)

4、Blowing over jam-type tune

Improvisation (no theme required) on one of the following short sequences:

Blues (be-bop changes)

Recorda-Me (Joe Henderson)

Doxy (Sonny Rollins)

Cantaloupe Island (Herbie Hancock)

Three chorus minimum.

Candidates are not required to provide charts for this component.

5、Transcription

Presentation of an excerpt of a transcribed solo;

one chorus of a 32/36 bar tune or

two choruses of a 16 bar tune or

three choruses of a blues

Candidates may choose to play along with the original recording (P.A. with mini-jack provided) or with trio accompaniment. (Please supply 4 copies)

6、Sight reading

The panel may ask for the candidate’s sight reading ability to be tested; this would take the form of a modern jazz orchestra part and would be accompanied by the trio.

7、Aural awareness

Informal aural test; in discussion with the panel chair, the candidate will be invited to identify core harmonic devices (major and minor II-V-Is etc.) and the recognition of common tonalities (e.g. 13#11, 7alt, 13sus).
