        J'ai acheté cette partition au hasard des commandes. Je me met un peu au Jazz. J'ai quelques notions. Et les premiers exercices proposés sont fort simples, je les déchiffre. Et au fur et à mesure des pages, ils se compliquent grandement, à mon grand bonheur. Ce Monsieur met l'essentiel dans les exercices, sans trop en faire, et ça sonne. En général il y a un exercice avec tout les doigtés marqués. puis une application plus Jazz, généralement sans doigtés, pour laisser le pianiste faire ses marques. Je n'ai pas fini de déchiffrer le livre à ce jour car j'aime refaire certains exercices. A recommander pour tous ceux qui veulent s'ouvrir au Jazz.

        Some gems in here - but they are not immediately obvious. This is a book to spend time with and work with - it's a pity there aren't some fuller explanations to help people like myself who don't really play jazz (like knowing when to play swing rhythms). But some excellent and fun exercises to help pupils strengthen fingers and improve dexterity etc.

        This book is excellent for early and advanced grades. It is good for Sight Reading, especially for rhythm and as a basis for improvisation and composition. You can have lots of fun with this book, especially if you have a pupil who needs musically revitalising as Oscar Peterson can act as a tonic

        A nicely presented book with clear and good sized printing. This combines the old multi volume series into one, so better value. The numbers of some of the pieces have changed, but no confusion, unless you had the old series or talk to someone who refers to an Etude, for example, in the old series.

        Des petits morceaux qui sonnent bien jazzy ou parfois assez classique, de niveau facile à intermédiaire; Tout cela me plait bien; Au boulot maintenant !

        Fantastic book. Gradually trains the aspiring jazz pianist to have full finger control and the pieces are all exciting for the student to play.

        This is a great book for introducing younger teenagers to some jazz melodies and short pieces. Also wonderful material to use in between exams (Grade 5 - 7) or playing through the pieces to improve sight-reading and becoming familiar with the jazz idiom. Excellent!

        Good book - exercises etc. graded in difficulty, working on different techniques leading to more challenging, interesting sounding pieces later on.

        une excellente entrée en matière pour aborder le jazz sous forme de petits exercices, ou comment se former l'oreille et les doigts au swing.

        I bought this for my brother and he seemed delighted with it, as far as jazz can be taught, he was happy with the level of tuition.

        Peterson's jazz exercises are definately for the committed jazz pianist. They are not as easy on the ear as you would imagine considering the composer's standing in the world of jazz.
