    A series of books for solo brass/woodwind instrument and piano. Each colourful collection is different, and comprises an eclectic set of arrangements of well-known (and not so well-known) jazz standards and original pieces that are fun to play. Each book contains a mixture of moods, styles, and tempos, to capture the imagination yet still provide a challenge to players of a wide range of ability.

    As Time Goes By • The Shadow of Your Smile • Mack the Knife • Autumn Leaves • I'm Getting Sentimental Over You • I've Got the World on a String • White and Grey • Ain't Misbehavin' • Lullaby of Birdland

    "... Here is a welcome addiition to the repertoire which will surely be popular with all trombonists who like to play ballads and lighter music. 11 Solos with accessible piano accompaniments, CD backing to follow at a later date. The selection of tunes covers the evergreen 'Getting Sentimental Over You' and 'Autumn Leaves' to Fats Waller's 'Ain't Misbehavin'. What is welcome is the programme note provided for all pieces which gives a brief history/historical context and, rather refreshingly, explains the form of the piece and touches on circle of fifths and chord symbols. The young player will find that although the range covers low F to high Ab it goes there only briefly. Although the range suggests Grades 4-6 I suspect the Grade 4 player might be stretched a little too much to get full benefit from the selection whereas the good Grade 5 or 6 player will be able to turn on the style for concerts and enjoy the pieces more."
