Jazz Piano Solos Volume 11 – Soul Jazz

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 11 Soul Jazz PDF. Solo arrangements with chord names of 20 soulful tunes. The arrangements are fun and kept interesting throughout. A nice twist on some of the familiar tunes like Unchain My Heart, and a fairly decent arrangement of Ray Charle’s What’d I Say. They are eminently playable and reasonably easy to sight-read, although getting them up to the original tempo will require practice. If you want to learn some soul jazz tunes in good solo piano arrangements, this book has them, just not as many or as much as you might like. Songs...

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 10 – Jazz Ballads

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 10 Jazz Ballads PDF. Fresh solo piano arrangements with chord names of 24 favorite ballads in a jazz style. This is a collection of tunes from the 30’s and 40’s. Good arrangements that are challenging. Somehow they managed to simplify the arrangements so that they still sound professional, but not so tricky that only a gifted few can play them. Some jazz arrangements that sound great and don’t require Oscar Peterson’s technique to play them. They are not so simple that they require no thought or serious practise. I’d say they range from early intermediate...

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 8 – Jazz Pop

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 8 Jazz Pop PDF. Jazz piano arrangements with chord names of 22 classic pop songs. Brent Edstrom’s arrangements are excellent, you don’t need to be Art Tatum to be able to play them either. This book has fantastic transcriptions of some great jazz songs. Who knew that Pop songs could sound so good and modern. Love the popular music, but most songbooks are heavy on the melody line and weak on the arrangement. Not in this book! Songs include: Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) – Phil Collins Blackbird – The Beatles...

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 6 – Hard Bop

Jazz Piano Solos Volume 6 Hard Bop PDF. 16 jazz classics from the ’50s and ’60s. Brent Edstrom writes very good solo piano arrangements, and this book has very good arrangements of very good tunes. There aren’t many tunes but the arrangements are generally extended with written-out solo choruses. If you are into hard bop you must get this book. Shortcomings are few: one arrangement is lame (“I Remember Clifford”); neither Dizzy tune is really a hard bop tune although both arrangements are good; “I Remember Bird” is an unattractive dirge; and Edstrom inexplicably changes key in the middle...
