Five superb albums of graded pieces provide a wealth of jazz repertoire for you to play. Throughout, there is a huge range of styles, from bebop blues to calypsos, boogie-woogie to ballads, jazz waltzes to free jazz. There are classic tunes by the jazz greats, including Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. And there are brand-new pieces specially commissioned from professional British jazz musicians and educators. Each album presents 15 pieces in three lists: blues, standards and contemporary jazz. The head of each piece is set out with all the characteristic voicings, phrasing and rhythmic patterns you need for a stylish performance. The improvised section gives guideline pitches and left-hand voicings as a practical starting-point. Accessible, student-centred and of the highest musical standards, these pieces will get you playing jazz confidently and creatively. Contains all the pieces for ABRSM's new jazz piano exam.

The arrival of the Associated Board's jazz syllabus marks a vital step towards recognition that jazz requires study and discipline like any other art form. * Stuart Nicholson, Author 'Jazz Rock: a History' and 'Billie Holiday' *
A musical revolution that should make every jazz lover leap for joy. * The Guardian *
