Michelle Mendoza Pawlak Jazz Journal #2 March 24, 2009 The first song selection was "The Mooche"  played by Duke Ellington and His  Orchestra. This piece was recorded October 1, 1928 for Okeh Records. Baby Cox was  featured in the song for vocals and sang about half way into the song. This jazz piece  begins out really slowly with the same repeated melody in the woodwind section with  the trumpet playing loudly in the background with a muted sound. After the introduction  everyone plays in unison and then there are solos through the piece. The technique of  scatting was in this piece and everyone got a chance at a solo. This song was New  York style jazz. This piece sounds very seductive and is probably aimed towards a  specific audience. This song was played in cut time and had a rather slow tempo. The  form in this song had a melody to it and then a solo would happen and then the band  would play in unison. I enjoyed listening to this song until the scatting began, I do not  like her voice at all. It is really unappealing and ruined the whole song for me. The best  part of the song would be the introduction for me when the woodwinds play.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
