A collection of extremely varied and well known songs - from the 1940's to 1980's - covering jazz and light popular styles.

These melodies are suited to the easy to intermediate grades with a careful allocation of note ranges to enable the young and developing embouchure (lip and facial muscles ) to play in a comfortable and musical manner. The pieces are arranged with attention to scalic and rhythmic development whilst giving the musical satisfaction of well known and simple songs such as the Pink Panther Theme. The lyrical O Sole Mio gives the opportunity of phrasing and breath control development whilst articulation and note recognition is provided by tunes like the jazz standard Sweet Georgia Brown and the comic Odd Job. Chord symbols are provided in the accompaniment part for additional enhancement or ensemble with other rhythm instruments.

... Something Else • O Sole • Pink Panther • Tuxedo Junction • Waltzing With Jazz • Out n’About • Agadou • Sweet Georgia Brown • Odd Job
