    This book was advertised as a piano solo transcription of big band music. What it actually is is merely the piano parts for the ensembles. I was looking for a piano solo of Moonlight Serenade and was incredibly disappointed in what I received, which was basically, the chord accompaniments and...

    a few small solo sections. Buyer beware.
