This series of graded albums providing a wealth of jazz repertoire. It contains well-known tunes in accessible arrangements and new pieces specially commissioned from top jazz musicians and educators. The CD with each album provides 'minus-one' backing tracks, as well as recordings of full performances.
This is a truly fantastic book. The arrangements are great and the links to the original arrangements helps foster a real interest in jazz. My 10 year old loves this book and has encouraged him to blow a lot more than for his "straight" cornet exams!
The CD is also excellent and helps develop improv ideas. Anonymous
