More about this title

Jazz Piano Pieces, Grade 1

Five superb albums of graded pieces provide a wealth of jazz repertoire.

Throughout, there is a huge range of styles, from bebop blues to calypsos, boogie-woogie to ballads, jazz waltzes to free jazz. There are classic tunes by the jazz greats, including Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. And there are brand-new pieces specially commissioned from professional British jazz musicians and educators.

Each album presents 15 pieces in three lists: blues, standards and contemporary jazz. The head of each piece is set out with all the characteristic voicings, phrasing and rhythmic patterns you need for a stylish performance. The improvised section gives guideline pitches and left-hand voicings as a practical starting-point.

Accessible, student-centred and of the highest musical standards, these pieces will get you playing jazz confidently and creatively.
