Explanation of Judging Criteria
Voice quality (20) - does the voice align with jazz style (i.e. have minimal vibrato, use appropriate air/tone ration, navigate all parts of the range well, and perform all
      of these things in a healthful manner)?

Notes (20) - does the singer sing the correct notes?

Rhythm (20) - does the singer sing accurate rhythms?

Dynamics (10) - does the singer sing musically at both a macro and micro level (i.e. sing with correct emphasis around the swing notes, accommodate large dynamic      shifts, sing each line with direction and purpose)? 

Diction (10) - does the singer sing the words and syllables written on the page? Does the singer use appropriate vowel shape for the vocal jazz style (i.e. have shallow      space in the mouth, make much of diphthongs, and use the text to convey emotion/story)?

Intonation (10) - can the singer sing in tune? This includes fast lines, held notes, and improvisation. 

Phrasing (5) - does the singer always sing with a sense of direction? Is the direction musically appropriate and stylistically interesting? 

Jazz Style (5) - does the singer display vocal jazz ability? Does the singer perform with a sense of ease and confidence? 

Improvisation (10 per judge) - can the singer create musical thoughts and phrases that are appropriate with the set of chord changes provided?
