  • August 07, 2012 Very impressed

    These are great arrangements with very modern voicings. They all have avery different feel because they're done by different musicians which is nice. Obviously it's a food selection of songs. I'd definitely recommend picking up a copy of this. The quality of the arrangements more than justifies...

    it and the printing and binding is very decent

    this volume has some beautiful stuff in it for anyone who loves jazz piano and the standards found here. super nice to have the original sheet music included, although much more fun to play the arrangments. Thanks to all those who contributed to this volume. just love it. Steve

  • September 10, 2009 Playing Like a Professional

    This is my kind of music book, because it doesn't sound like you're playing from a book. It's not mechanical, but flowing. I especially liked Preston Keys' arrangement of Blue Moon. I like the jazz touch and I intend to order more of the same from Sheetmusicplus...

    .com. Thank you for carrying them. Lynn Fabia

    A book of great arrangements. Especially good are 'As Time Goes By' and 'Over The Rainbow'. If you want to sound like a real pro, this book is for you.

  • February 21, 2008 Great pleasure to play

    Great sounds from the piano, and these arrangements are not too difficult but just challenging enough for the intermediate-level player. Good variety by different arrangers so that each piece has its own style.
