Description

Jazz on a Winter's Night is a Christmas Piano album of stylish, swinging arrangements. Favourite Christmas carols and songs receive the complete jazz treatment, with rhythm, harmony, grooves, and solos all carefully notated.

The expertise of the arranger, celebrated jazz pianist and composer Nikki Iles, guarantees an authentic jazz sound, and a range of styles from Nat King Cole to John Coltrane. While paying homage to American Christmas jazz, the collection also reflects a European tradition, in such time-honoured classics as In the Bleak Mid-Winter.

  • Expert arrangements for players at intermediate level (Grades 4 - 8)
  • Written solos, perfectly in style and swinging!
  • Wide range of jazz styles and influences, from swing to contemporary, including Frank Sinatra, Bill Evans, Vince Mendoza, and Abdullah Ibrahim
  • CD of full performances, by Nikki Iles, to help with interpretation and feel

Rating Review
Customer Rating Most of the pieces are very nicely arranged. however, they are not as difficult as it makes out on the description. Overall a good buy.
Anon.

Customer Rating The material is good fun (generally about Grade 4 to 5). It's a shame that the chords being used are not marked and that players are not shown the chords on which to improvise (as is the standard ABRSM approach in its course).

Customer Rating Love this new book, it has been very popular with my piano students.

Customer Rating Fantastic arrangements and a good selection of songs. The CD makes it a lot easier to learn if you're not that good at sight reading.

Customer Rating As a fan of Nikki Iles' work in the ABRSM Jazz Piano syllabus, I bought this with high expectations and it doesn't disappoint. A well thought out and varied collection, some arrangements of well known carols, others less well known but equally enjoyable. I'd grade the pieces at grade 3 to 6. Highly recommended.

Customer Rating Similar to Jazz on. A Summer's Day this compilation is largely enjoyable to play, around Grade Five to Six standard and with interesting harmonies to some well known carols. After you have played one or two, the harmonies tend to sound somewhat the same. The arrangements are well laid out and easy to read. A pleasant compilation.

Customer Rating One of my friends has this book and I love it so much I had to buy myself a copy too. I am not a jazz player but find these arrangements very approachable.
