George Speckert has once again created a collection of easy pieces which are fun to perform and sound attractive. The duets are comfortable to play, have an authentic jazz feel to them and are full of nuances; musicians and teachers will enjoy them as much as the listener. Marked rhythms and distinctive melodies give the pieces that special something.
