As one would expect in jazz, there are regular stretches of a seventh, but not much beyond that, meaning that the pieces are also suitable for those with smaller hands. The included CD is essential listening, conveying nuances of rhythmic and tonal inflection which can't be notated. Nikki is of course an exceptional and highly experienced professional jazz performer, and it really shows here. For a well-styled performance, the audio content offers an outstanding model which should not be ignored. Jazz on a Winter's Night has established itself as my all-time favourite Christmas music book a but this sequel gives it a run for its money! Both books are now utterly essential for any pianist above intermediate level. It's great to find that Jazz on a Winter's Night 2 is as absolutely brilliant as its forerunner, and it really does deserve to sell a million! * www.pianodao.com *
