In the newly published Jazz Etudes Hradecky acquaints young pianists with some means of jazz expression, which are played differently than those of classical music. The first part of the album consists of nine simpler etudes designed for pupils of 3rd-5th year of elementary art school. These are followed by four compositions for more experienced players (without fingerings) and at the end of the album you will find two Blues compositions in which you can excercise basic improvisation. All the etudes contain instructions for correct interpretation.
