This book contains music exploring the jazz idiom. It emcompasses various modern styles, from blues and jazz to rock. Not only are the pieces great fun, but each contains different techniques and challenges which the student will encounter elsewhere in their piano playing. Essential fingering suggestions have been included. These should be carefully followed, along with the tempo indications, to ensure a smooth performance. A suggested drum style for each piece provides a steady beat for the piano/keyboard player to play along to. ©2007, 32 pages.
