    I love the arrangements even though some are a little too difficult for me at this stage. The accompaniment is great. I have already performed one number for members of our (Probus) Club. I bought the Flute/Oboe book also to give to a friend.

  • February 27, 2008 Nice Tunes, By George

    Unlike the other three books I bought, this one is only for alto sax (so I can't also try the pieces on my clarinet without transposing). Still, the arrangements are nice.

  • October 06, 2007 IT'S NEVER TOO LATE!

    These arrangements are great for the "has been" like me who hasn't touched the instrument in thirty years, and suddenly gets nostalgic and becomes a "wanna be" again. The Gershwin tunes are perfectly chosen and arranged. They are difficult enough to be challenging for arthritic fingers and aging lungs...

    but not impossible. I am enjoying them very much and beginning to get the old fingers working again. A very nice title!
