The transcriptions are great, but only 1 of the 8 is a solo piece.

The cover of the book states "8 Solo Transcriptions". The description on the Hal Leonard website says "eight solo piano transcriptions". However, only 1 is truly a solo piano piece ('On a Clear Day' from the album Alone). The rest are trio pieces.

That said, the transcriptions themselves are EXCELLENT, as is the case for the other Artist Transcription books I've seen. It might be worth purchasing (though at a much lower price) for "On a Clear Day" by itself. Also, if you're not interested in performing solo pieces, the other 7 provide good reference/research material...afterall, it's Bill Evans.

I doubt this is intentional deception, and rather just an oversight; Hal Leoanrd is a well-established publishing company.

However, I was still pretty disappointed, as I imagine others have been as well.

Just to reiterate what the last reviewer said: This is not a book of solos. It will sound horribly thin without accompaniment, so unless you want a play with trios or are willing to work in some bass lines on your own, this isn't the book for you.

Verified Purchase
This should be considered required material
for anyone studying the idiom of jazz.
I can't think of anyone of merit playing
that hasn't stolen from the genius of Bill Evans' voicings.
Learn from the best....
