    I like this book. Nice chording and not too difficult to read. Would like to see more of these arrangements.

  • March 10, 2009 Not Quite What I thought

    The good thing about these arrangements is that they do include the chord symbols and these symbols are accurate consistently (although this is one possible "bop" way of doing subs). I found the quality of the written piano stylings to be inconsistent and a few of the songs are obscure...

    I was very disappointed in this book. Not only were the arrangements mediocre, the choice of songs was also poor. I would have returned the book on your no questions asked return policy, but I waited too long to do so.

  • August 11, 2008 Sophisticated yet very playable

    I am not a big jazz fan, but these smooth, lush stylings are exactly the kind of jazz I do like. And I was glad to find the words inserted, so they can easily be modified to use as vocal accompaniments. I have no real ability to create my own...

    arrangements, but I'm pretty picky about those I'll play, whether for audiences or pure pleasure. Wish I'd found this book sooner!
