An outstanding introduction to jazz and blues for beginning students of any age! Bill Boyd's trademark, stunning ability to translate real jazz style into easy, fun solos for the elementary pianist is readily apparent in each and every piece in this collection. These original, easy-to-play jazzy solos, use basic 5-finger patterns, at times shifting up to IV, V and back to the Tonic in a 12-bar blues pattern. Uses rhythms in quarter and half notes, simple meters, and basic keys.
