Our Description

Taken from the introduction:

'Our thinking behind the book is two-fold; to include pieces that are enjoyable and challenging to play, and to craft the arrangements so that they are approachable for inexperienced improvisors as well as those with more experience.  The programme and performance notes will give you some ideas about how to approach our compositions, and better still, work through the book with your teacher or another musican, discussing ideas for both the interpretation of written material and ideas for improvising.'


This book is suitable for all treble clef C, Bb and Eb instruments plus bass clef C instruments.

Difficulty guide: 6-8
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).


Thirteen fun and funky pieces that are designed to provide the intermediate to advanced level player with an opportunity to play along with a great rhythm section, reading original compositions.
