BLUES BOOGIE & GOSPEL COLLECTION

15 pieces for Solo Piano

The companion volume to Blues, Boogie & Gospel Collection includes 13 originals alongside Tim's arrangements of Thelonious Monk's 'Well You Needn't' and Duke Ellington's 'Come Sunday'.

The collection is aimed at pianists looking to expand their musical horizons. Pieces are graded, the level ranging from around Grades 3-7. Spanning an eclectic range of styles - including bebop, modal jazz, swing, blues, funk, calypso, samba and bossa - several pieces also blur the boundary between jazz and classical music.

In common with its predecessor, the pieces also include Tim's transcribed solos, to help you get a handle on the improvisation process. Further examples of improvisation are included on the MP3 downloads that accompany the book.

A wide range of styles from many countries are featured, including:

"An instant classic, earning an immediate place at the top table. These are deeply felt, expertly realised and above all authentic pieces that will not only hopefully open up the world of blues piano playing to a new wave of enthusiasts, but which are classics in their own right.
Proves itself not simply as the best 'jazz piano' publication of the year, but probably the best of the decade so far."

"A really informative and great fun book showing students how to explore these ever poular styles."
