Broadway By Special Arrangement
is a collection of 11 songs arranged for the instrumentalist wanting to pay in a jazz style - without the need to learn to improvise. The 'Clasically' trained amateur or professional performer, or the intermediate-level (III-IV) student, will enjoy palying thses expertly arranged Broadway melodies just for fun or to include as a light piece on a recial or solo-feature concert performance.
The ballads and medium tempo and up tempo swing tunes are arranged with a play-through of the melody followed by a written-out varaition chorus, a return to the melody, and an ear catching ending.
The piano, bass, and drum accompaniment CD will put you right in the band. The CD includes both the solo instrument with the accompaniment track and an accompaniment-alone track for each selection. The inexperienced performer can learn the appropriate style of playing and be comfortable playing in the jazz style before playing along with any of the rhythm section track.
