The World’s Best Piano Arrangements

The most elegant, lyrical stylings, luscious harmonies, frills and fancies that mark the truly professional player – they are all here in the one collection that you will want to turn to again and again. Whether you play professionally, for friends, or just for your own enjoyment, you will thrill to these exquisite arrangements of the great songs, by such pianists as George Shearing, Bill Evans, Matt Dennis, Teddy Wilson, Earl Hines, Art Tatum, Hazel Scott, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Eddie Heywood, Ed Shanaphy, Dave Brubeck and more truly great arrangers for piano! With standard notation (does not include words to the songs). Now, you can sound like the best too!
You will find a lot of these songs are old classics. A lot of these songs were arranged by George Shearing who is a 91 year old British jazz pianist who had the honor of performing for three U.S. presidents, and we also get some older classic arrangements by Fats Waller and Art Tatum. Many rare songs are included in this like Jitterbug Waltz or Coming to Virginia. The way these songs are arranged, you won’t be surprised that these came off the pens of the professionals, everything flows together so well, with the advanced bass lines and chords. This is not for beginners at all. If you are a performer, this book would impress many people if played the way they were arranged. Definitely for the intermediate to advanced pianist.
For starters, its arrangers are mostly names most jazz fans will recognize and admire. 31 of its 100 songs are George Shearing arrangements (“Over the Rainbow,” “Don’t Blame Me.” “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing,” “Killing Me Softly,” etc).
