This project report analyzes the content of line construction and development in founding bebop instrumental solos, and then compares them to bebop vocal solos. Performers examined include Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, and Chet Baker. Attention will be paid to harmonic content, vocal technique, syllable selection, and consideration given to language synthesis principals. This paper is intended as an impetus for further study of method improvements for developing vocalists' line construction through the study and incorporation of bebop-era instrumental transcriptions.
