Five albums of graded pieces providing a wealth of jazz repertoire. Each presents 15 pieces in three lists: blues, standards and contemporary jazz. The head of each piece is set out with characteristic voicings, phrasing and rhythmic patterns. The improvised section gives guideline pitches and left-hand voicings as a practical starting-point.
