What you call such vocals depends on what genre of music you're in, but the term 'Vocalise' will cover most forms.


vocalise [voh-kuh-leez]

noun 1. a musical composition consisting of the singing of melody with vowel sounds or nonsense syllables rather than text, as for special effect in classical compositions, in polyphonic jazz singing by special groups, or in virtuoso vocal exercises.

2. any such singing exercise or vocalized melody. Compare like terms: doo-wop, melisma, scat singing, solfeggio.
