Jazz Works is a brand new collection of compositions for jazz ensembles at three levels. For each level there are eight original pieces in a challenging range of styles, with parts for C, Bb, Eb and bass-clef instruments, and for a rhythm section of piano, guitar, bass and drums. Each piece is backed up with detailed performance and rehearsal notes, as well as remarks on stylistic and cultural influences - everything, in short, to help directors, teachers and performers get the best out of the pieces. There are also helpful links to the separate Teacher's Book and CD (ISBN 1 86096 093 6).

Review quote

These exemplary publications ... In keeping with the best jazz tradition, this material is designed not for examination but rather edification and enjoyment, and would be very useful not only for the teacher, but also the rehearsal or professional band. ... it's hard to fault this product in any respect. The performances on the CDs are of a very professional and inspirational standard and the design and printing of the books is lucid and appealing. * Jazz Review * This is an all-embracing series for jazz ensembles ... well laid out with clear explanations and illustrations ... In all an excellent place to go for starting, developing or extending almost any jazz group.' Sheet Music Spring 2000'The teacher's book is excellent. Jeremy Price and Mike Sheppard have written a comprehensive guide to the issues that arise in the teaching of jazz ... This is an excellent series ... it demonstrates how seriously the Associated Board is
taking its move into jazz. * NYJO *
