A second collection of great original jazz pieces written in an easy-going, lighthearted style. Easy-to-learn solos in 5-finger positions that shift up and back within a basic blues pattern. Uses eighth notes, swing eighths, simple and 6/8 meters. Short, authentically-styled easy jazz for the late-elementary student. A real favorite for all ages. 11 Solos: Dixieland Jam • Hand-to-Hand Combat • Major Song • Minor Song • Primetime Blues • A Rather Racous Rock • The Rock Exchange • Six Ate Beets • Soft Shoe Shuffle • Sweet Swing • Why Not?
