      A number of easily accessible satisfying pieces along with some other less familiar jazz styles and sounds to investigate later.

      A lovely set of pieces with plenty of variety in both mood and execution. I like the way the pieces relate to many of the jazz 'greats" too. There is plenty in this little gem to challenge intermediate players, whoever you are!

      I bought this book for the ABRSM grade 6 'Mr. Satchmo' as it didn't look too expensive and I thought I might as well see if anything else in it was good. There are some good pieces, although 'Mr. Satchmo' is by far my favourite. It's just so catchy! I really like 'Billie's Song' too. I'd say that's about a grade 4 for the chords. Quick delivery & the book was in excellent condition.
