    Beccles , Suffolk, England
    Difficulty Level:
  • October 26, 2011 Great service great music

    Great arrangements and one of the few books that has 'Gloomy Sunday' which is what we got it for. Very comprehensive repetoire including the more unusual songs. Very good service from Sheet Music Plus. We live in England and delivery was prompt and the songbook arrived in very good condition...

  • July 02, 2011 She's Got The Blues

    Lots of great blues songs I knew and.some I wasn't familiar with but I'm trying them out. Arrangements are a good level for me---an adult returning to the keyboard after a long absence.

    Stockton, California
    Difficulty Level:
  • April 28, 2011 Good Buy

    I am in my late 50's and and re-learning the piano. I don't know many jazz songs, but found several familiar ones in this book. The book is vast in variety, a very good buy. The songs vary in difficulty, but are generally at intermediate level.
