Part of the popular ‘Top Ten’ series, this collection contains ten carefully selected pieces in the jazz style.
There is such variety within the genre we call 'jazz' it seems almost impossible to do it justice in just ten songs, but we've given it our best shot. We've unforgettable standards, like Duke Ellington's 'Take The A Train', and 'Fly Me To The Moon' as popularised by Frank Sinatra; elegant tunes from the 1930s, such as 'The Way You Look Tonight' and 'The Very Thought Of You'; classic numbers from the late 50s and early 60s, 'So What' and 'Cantaloupe Island' - and we make no apology for stretching the jazz definition to accommodate the gorgeous 'Girl From Ipanema'!
Some of the pieces are arranged for Piano and Voice; others are purely instrumental, but every one possesses that special something that has earned it a place in our collection, and indeed in the heads and hearts of countless jazz lovers around the world.
Each piece in The Top Ten Jazz Songs To Play On Piano is accompanied by interesting background notes to give you that extra bit of insight.
