Question 3:

 

Compare three very different trumpet solos: Dizzy Gillespie’s solo on “Salt Peanuts,” Miles Davis’s solo on “Jeru,” and Wynton Marsalis’s solo on “In the Afterglow.” Describe the musical characteristics of each solo, and compare the styles, labeling the genre of jazz music that corresponds to each example. How do these trumpeters’ solos contribute to the overall impact of the music? Include any reactions you may have upon listening to each.

Question 4:

 

 

 

Music can be a very powerful vehicle to convey meaning or ideas to an audience. With this in mind, analyze the music elements in one example from the American musical theater tradition, choosing either Bernstein’s “Tonight” from West Side Story or Sondheim’s “Attend the Tale of Sweeney Todd” from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Discuss how the composer uses various musical sounds or elements (tempo, melody, dynamics, rhythm, etc.) to contribute to the overall meaning of the song. Include specific examples heard in the music, and link these examples to the lyrics or drama that is taking place.

Your response should be at least 200 words in length.
