anyone know what this means I was reading through my Micheal Brecker Transcription book and one of the symbols in the index represents a vocalized altissimo note. I know what a regular altissimo note is but what about the vocalized part.

I haven't heard that term before....Brecker used to split alot of his altissimo....either that or this could be like what Potter does, who adds a little growl/scream/hum behind his altissimo.....

actually come to think of it, Brecker did do this. On his album with Joe Lovano and Dave Liebman (Saxophone Summit) on India, Brecker does this alot in the end of his solo. That last scream of his always send shivers down my spine.

Vocalized notes are notes played with a growl. I got that term from Dave Liebman. Brecker also used that term along with the term split tone, which means a multiphonic with the top tone the dominant pitch.
