        A good selection of Jazz pieces, which are ideal for my choir!

        This is the most difficult with the least nice arrangements of the Just Voices books I have seen. All the others in the series I have been delighted with but this doesn't match up.

        This is one of the best books in the series 'Just Voices'. Barrie Carson Turner's arrangements look to give some thematic interest to all three parts, although to be fair most resides with the soprano line. Secondly the 3rd line (Alto/Tenor) is pitched fairly low, so this line should be acceptable to baritones - or as it will be SAB in my choir. With 46 pages of music and 10 songs the book offers good value for money. I deducted one star because I would have liked the inclusion of chord symbols in this jazz style music to allow for an optional accompaniment.

        This collection of ten popular jazz-sogns is, contains, just as the other books in this series, easy three-part arrangements for a cappella choirs, either three-part female voices or soprano, alto and tenor. The book contains real standards, even I who am not generally a jazz fan recognize eight out of ten songs! Most of the songs are from 1930-1960, but several of them have been recorded recently by for example Mike Bublé, so might well be recognized even by the younger singers. The arrangements are generally homophonic, all parts singing the same rhythm and text. In my opinion more could have been done with the alto part, maybe giving it some walking bases and rhythmic things to play with. The book works fine with choirs at a basic level, and I’ve used one or two songs for small groups of more advanced singers a few times, which has been successful.

        Looks fine for a filler for a concert - just a bit of fun. Looking forward to trying some out.
