    Some fun selections, all jazz arrangements. CD is weird as V.L. Watts ironically plays I Got Rhythm with incorrect rhythm, at least until the stride bass enters. Leaves one wondering...

    This book was exactly what I was looking for. Very 1920s, the pieces are not overly difficult, but tricky enough to retain interest. Definitely one to add to the repetoire!
