        Good range of styles in the various pieces, best ones are those written more recently, showing that Chris Norton has improved over the years!
        Some pieces can be a bit repetitive

        Clearly printed with handy foreword how to approach learning the different pieces. c.d.not bad but not as a piano solo, as say abrsm cds. worth the price all the same.

        This is a really good series with good learning guides to each piece. Thoroughly recommend these as an entry to jazz.
