    I bought this book to add to my collection of the Popular Performer series. Contrary to how the book is advertised, these songs arrangements are definitely not advanced. As I look at the cover, I see they are early advanced (wished I would have caught that before I purchased). This...

    was surprising to me since all the other books I've purchased in this series were challenging with beautiful and full chord structures, advanced timings, etc. This book gave me little to work on since the songs were easy to play. With that said, this is not a bad book for someone who plays at the intermediate level but is definitely not for someone looking for a challenge.

    Melody Bober's arrangements are always tops and this book is no exception. Anywhere the Heart Goes and Days of Wine and Roses are especially fine.
