Jazz Piano - Level 2 by : Various Authors

“What good is music if it ain't got that swing?”

– Duke Ellington

The Associated Board responds with Jazz Piano; a comprehensive introduction to the world of jazz. A pioneering set of publications and optional assessment materials provide the building blocks you need to play jazz with imagination; understanding; and style; and to improvise effectively right from the start. Five levels of graded pieces contain a wide range of styles: funky jazz; up-tempo swing; calypso; Latin; jazz waltz; modal; bebop; Gospel; ragtime; free jazz; and more. There are classic tunes by Duke Ellington; Miles Davis; Bill Evans; and Thelonious Monk. Within each level there are 15 pieces; aural tests; quick studies; scales; arpeggios; and a CD. The 15 pieces are presented in three categories: blues; standards; and contemporary jazz. Each piece provides a head/melody which contains all the characteristic voicings; phrasing; and rhythmic patterns needed for a stylish performance. An improvised section follows; where guideline pitches and left-hand voicings are given as a practical starting point for solos. Totally accessible and at the highest musical standards; these pieces provide the opportunity to play jazz confidently and creatively.
