    Difficulty Level:
  • August 28, 2007 A good choice

    If you buy this book rather than other editions with the songs in much higher keys than Billie Holiday sang in you will at least be on the right track to performing them well. As a singing teacher and always suggest that my female jazz students perform in stylistically appropriate...

    keys and a good starting point is the keys that the greats used.

    Difficulty Level:
  • September 10, 2004 Hmm..it's okay

    It was okay - It's quite simple, so you've gotta do your own improvisation. I like the keys that the songs are in, and it's nice to sing along. I think it's more of an accompaniment book.
