Dance[edit]

Does the dance paragraph belong here? Solo is a disambig, so it would be at Solo (dance). Hyacinth 11:20, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree. If there are no objections, I will split the page. -- Natalya 15:05, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Actually, since there is already an article called solo dance, I will just merge the information. -- Natalya 15:14, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

References[edit]

I've rewritten most of the article, in particular to distinguished separate but related meanings. But I'm very much aware there are no references. ColinFine 11:08, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Jazz[edit]

Kirby119 has edited the paragraph on Jazz from

In many Jazz performances, each number will alternate ensemble sections with solo sections where one performer is playing either completely alone, or with unobtrusive accompaniment from the others. Such solos are often improvised.

to

In many Jazz performances, soloists are accompanied by a rhythm section, usually drums, guitar, bass, or piano. Soloists often also have quiet background music from several other instruments.

I am no expert on Jazz, but I'm pretty sure the original paragraph (which was one bit of the article which wasn't by me) is correct. I'm wondering why Kirby119 replaced it rather than adding to it? ColinFine 20:28, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Changed it, at the time of the original edit I had trouble of how to work them together, then seemed to think I already finished it and hit save. I put the original back up with my editing included. Sorry about that. -Kirby119

Etymology[edit]

Considering the roots of classical music, it seems more likely that the term comes from Italian rather than Spanish. However, I have no reference for this. Vvidetta 15:19, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

More than Jazz and Classical?[edit]

Shouldn't there be extra sections about other genres? Guitarplayer001 (talk) 03:05, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Now there's an brief one for Solo (music)#Popular music! Hyacinth (talk) 04:09, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Requested move: "Musical scale" → "Scale (music)"[edit]

I have initiated a formal RM action to move Musical scale to Scale (music). Contributions and comments would be very welcome; decisions of this kind could affect the choice of title for many music theory articles.
