Another worthwhile book in the excellent Hal Leonard Jazz Playalong series. The arrangements are excellent as are the backing tracks. Most selections are straightforward to play; however, the improvised sections may prove a greater challenge to those who are not reasonably proficient. Most enjoyable. Anonymous
