  • February 08, 2019 Wonderful solo jazz arrangements

    This collection is the best I've found to-date. The piano arrangements are exciting, varied, and have simple "improv" lines that compel one to want to master this line of playing. I am visiting this site to hopefully another book of the same quality.

  • July 03, 2011 One of the best Jazz Piano books I've found!

    This is the only book I have ever managed to find which contains arrangements of Jazz Standards that are entirely for Piano. Too many books have a piano accompaniment to a vocal line, but this book is for piano only and beautifully incorporates the melody line into each arrangement. This...

    music is great fun to play and quite challenging in places. Not for beginners, but you don't need to be a virtuoso either.
