    Difficulty Level:
  • November 10, 2013 Am loving this new book

    Like the description says, you will sound like one of "the greats" of jazz when you play these. Well, albeit in slow motion to start off. These are advanced, so don't expect to sightread them perfectly at full speed right off that bat. But, the jazz harmonies and the...

    very jazzy improvisatory-style (but all written out) right hand dalliances during the many variations will make you smile and keep playing these often enough that they will soon be up to speed, and then you'll really be a-grinnin'. Fantastic book, and I am loving it.
