    Being rated grade 4 on the inside cover, this book can pose challenges to most. Highest note is A above the staff. Hot Tamale (2:20) is a fast latin song that can be quite challenging during the solo but the rest is straighforward. HighwayDrive (2:53) is a medium...

    paced 'rock ballad type song' that is most likely the hardest due to the many partials in the solo (i.e. fast semi-quaver jumps from 2nd octave on the trumpet, c to e to g etc.) Butterfly (3:03) is a great swing tune that has real soul. However this one burns away at your endurance. Black cat, Black hat (2:57) is a pop ballad that is the easiest of the tunes. Getaway Blues (1:48) is a fast swing chart that is challenging due to the semi-quaver triplets and mordents (or turns) on quavers. Overall this book is great although much harder than V1 but still worth the purchase
