Recently I just bought another piano and I've picked the book up again.
If you want to play classic boogie and blues piano then you must have this book!
Does it still come with a floppy vinyl record?
Eric Arthur Kriss (born 1949) produced and performed in 1976 on Mike Bloomfield's "If You Love These Blues" and "Play 'Em As You Please", which was nominated for a Grammy Award. He launched the instructional book and record division of Guitar Player Magazine and co-founded Inner City Records (voted "Record Label of the Year" in the 1979 International Jazz Critics Poll.)
Eric Kriss is the founder/CEO of MediVision (1983-89), a network of eye surgery centers. He co-founded private investment firm Bain Capital in 1984, with T. Coleman Andrews III and Mitt Romney (the candidate for the Republican nomination for 2008 Presidential election). Eric served as assistant A&F secretary under Governor William Weld (1991-93) and was CEO of MediQual Systems (1993-98), a healthcare information company. He also served as Secretary of Administration and Finance in Massachusetts' Governor Mitt Romney's cabinet (2003-05).

This 112-page book is the CD edition (book with CD). It has the lyrics of several tunes and some nice pictures of the artists. I believe that the tunes that you get are the original ones, as the inside of the front cover is loaded with "Used by permission of (name) Records", unlike most other books which are arrangements of original tunes. Some tunes in this book are playable by the late beginner, but most are for the intermediate player.Read more ›
Adds to my collection of books I use as reference.

This book was a disappointment to me. Its main claim to fame is that it contains complete written-out transcriptions of particular artists playing particular blues songs. Read morePublished 16 months ago by soar-geezer

My student preferred the Stride and Swing Piano book to this one but I'm glad to have another advanced book.Published on January 30, 2013 by Ivory Melody
This book is lengthy and for each song includes a little mini history with background details, which I'm not interested in, simply because this is a music book, not a history book. Read morePublished on February 5, 2012 by Emily E. Jefferys
