  • October 18, 2008 A+ for Gershwin at the Keyboard

    This collection of 18 songs arranged by Gershwin himself is a gem. It has not been adulterated or oversimplified by other editors. The kaleidoscopic harmonies are wonderful -- sometimes bluesy, or impressionistic or chromatic. Some of the chords may be a stretch for a small hand, but well worth the effort...

    . I'm a student of classical music and have really enjoyed my foray into jazz with this collection.

  • September 27, 2008 An intriguing collection, well-arranged.

    While challenging for my level of ability on the piano, an accomplished intermediate player would find this title in their range. I fumble around, however, and enjoy myself. Good choice of songs, not the predictable "greatest hits" kind of thing. II bought this purely for the music for "sweet and...

    lowdown", but the other titles are well-chosen, well-arranged, clear, and fun to play. An excellent purchase.

  • May 29, 2008 George Gershwin Lives!

    I consider this book one of my treasures. The pieces are difficult (for me) but I enjoy the challenge. Each one is a small gem. If I were stranded on a desert island (with a piano) and only one book, this would be the one!

  • May 01, 2008 For Upright Piano Players

    I expected fabulous arrangements and I was somewhat disappointed. These arrangements are packed with full octaves and full-octave chords. Such arrangements will help a weak upright piano sound its best, but they are altogether overdone for a better piano such as a grand or a large upright in good...

    shape. (It will be too many notes and will sound loose and loud.)

  • April 23, 2008 Gershwin is great fun!

    Happy to find this music. Played Rialto, Swanee, and I'll Build a Stairway... in recital.
