This book contains ten songs in jazz, latin and swing styles all based on the chord progressions of well-known jazz standards. It covers a wide range of jazz idioms and periods ranging from Dixie-Rhythm-March in the swinging, meandering rhythm of 1920’s New Orleans to Et Aloros which is in the style of 1960s Miles Davis. The play-along CD features a live jazz band.
