Book Description

Boogie, blues, ragtime, swing and other jazz styles are irresistible to most pianists, but not always accessible to student pianists. Composer Robert Vandall has removed all barriers to successful student performances, by making sure that each ""jazzy solo"" in this Celebrated series cleverly introduces students to a specific jazz scale, harmony, rhythm or form. Book 2 contains favorite Vandall jazz solos, as well as some newly composed pieces. Titles: Amen Corner
* Bluesy Mood
* Boogs Boogie
* Buckeye Rag
* BVs Boogie
* Chriss Blues
* Feeling Great!
* Jazzing It
* Mystery
* Sunny Day
* Super Sleuth.

staccato v. legato, accidentals, rhythms; perhaps can grow on you or be enjoyed subjectively by some students

same as first book [writing lacking; predictable, repetitive; intended style doesn't seem actualized at this elementary level; not Vandall's best]; composer seems limited by the lower level; his style seems stifled, not very satisfying, notes don't sound good

Pedagogical Value: same as first book [Sequence, Ostinato, position changes often, syncopated rhythms; more educational than fun]; meter changes; well-placed accents

Super Sleuth: has its charm; fun harmonies & use of accidentals, & despite repetition, compositionally it works
