The Jazz Piano Player: Stormy Weather contains 15 classic jazz standards in an ingenious new format for jazz pianists, arranged by John Kember. Each piece is presented in two formats: the first version includes melody, lyrics and basic chord structure, ideal for improvisation; the second version is a superb arrangement for piano solo, for intermediate level pianists.
All the songs are helpfully included in their standard keys so pianists will be able to play with other jazz musicians, and there also a quick guide on piano jazz chords for added tutorial assistance. The free CD included features full performances of all the arrangements by pianist John Kember for an enhanced learning mobility.
The Jazz Piano Player Series is designed for those wanting to make the transition into jazz or pop piano playing. An essential new resource for all jazz pianists - a great way in for players wanting to make a transition into jazz, as well as for pianists wanting to develop their own style.
