    I am extremely pleased with this book. It spelled out the complete line of improvisational riffs. There is no other way that I could possibly learn to play jazz if such scores were not available.

    I find this edition to be lacking in that it is just a piano redution of what all the instruments are playing. It's not possible to play slides on piano as written. Where the bass solos there are just rests written. It doen't even give you the changes...

    for the solos. Try one of the "Artistry" books instead (2 vols [Editor's Note - item #s WB.TPF0148 and WB.TPF0167) or the "19 Arrangments" [Editor's Note - Item # HL.116] instead.

    This is the first Hal Leonard issue of Bill Evans transcriptions and it is a great beginning. Hal Leonard purchased the Bill Evans catalog from The Richmond Organization (formerly The Acorn Group) and the Bill Evans catalogs from Teneten Music, the company owned by Nenette Evans. Hal Leonard controls all...

    the Bill Evans songbooks except for the two Warner Brother’s releases, “The Artistry of …� volumes one and two.
