The cons of the range are that when the outliers are too dramatic and far away from the other numbers, they give us an inaccurate depiction of sample size.

    His melding of the song’s lyrics with jocular remarks perfectly embodies the mixing and matching that occurs in jazz performances. Armstrong’s comments on his makeup and how hard the pianist is playing relax the atmosphere and sustain my attention on what he is saying.

Dobell and Smith, both being the tenors in this group, sang slightly lower notes by using modal register. As for Smith, his vocal range is between the range of…
