This collection of recorded and transcribed jazz piano arrangements is more than just a play-along compilation. It allows a student to observe in detail how an accomplished jazz pianist plays with a group, creates solos and accompaniments ("comping"), and constructs jazz harmonic treatments through chord substitutions and special voicings. Noreen Grey Lienhard, an award-winning jazz pianist and one of the most widely published jazz educators, has created this book and compact disc collection of ten truly wonderful jazz standards in ballad, Latin, and up-tempo settings. She has meticulously transcribed each of her solos and chord voicings so that students may, through analysis, better understand the art of piano jazz while immersing themselves in a proper jazz environment. In addition to the transcribed solos, this volume contains a typical lead sheet styled section for all ten tunes, often with Noreen's suggested chord voicings. CD 1 features Noreen as pianist with instrumental back-up. CD 2 eliminates the solo piano track. As with all books in this series, it includes a unique lay-flat binding to help keep the music open on the music stand.
