New Musical Instruments #3:

THE JAZZ PIANO CHOIR by Joel Sattler

Sight reading is the ability to play a piece at the first reading of the music. 

The Jazz piano choir makes use of this technique.

The choir is composed of at least ten singers who can sight-read music [one for each finger!]. The actual player is the pianist, who improvises the piece, which is translated into sheet music instantly, which is read by the choir members and sung as as "scat" [nonsense words].

I would guess that the player would have to be in a soundproof room, so as not to be distracted by the singers, who would probably need a lead time of a few seconds to read the music as they sing it.

If the pianist was playing with a group, would the group be in the booth with him? Or would they be with the singers? Or both?

Now, the NAACP will have that piano only with black keys and the KKK choir will have but white keys. So be advised. (LOL)
