The art of vocalese is an inevitable result of both modern recording technology and the African American oral tradition. Additionally, in-depth analyses of a few well-known vocaleses show that writing vocalese requires a high level of musical understanding and verbal dexterity—perhaps as much skill as was required by the original composer of the music. Ultimately, a well-written vocalese provides a deeper understanding of all the cultural, technological, and historical elements that contributed to its creation.
