Jazz Ballads: Jazz Piano Solos Series Volume 10 (Jazz Piano Solos (Numbered)) Reviews

    A very nice selection of ballads, some that aren't included in any other of the too many collections I've gathered over the years. Most of the arrangements that I suspect are by Brent Edstrom have a really unique touch to them. Sophisticated, but very playable by a pianist at the intermediate level and beyond. One caveat – although Edstrom is listed as the arranger in the Amazon link, several of the songs are not arranged by Edstrom. A couple, Misty and Moon River, and one or two others, are in a collection I own arranged by Al Lerner, who's also a very skilled arranger, but I mildly object to the minor bit of subterfuge. I'm taking a star away after further exploration of the contents. Fully 1/3 of the arrangements are from another Hal Leonard collection I already own. The description lead me to believe that all selections were arranged by Edstrom, and I really enjoy his arrrangements.

    They're not easy, but the chords are gorgeous. Makes you sound like a nightclub pianist. Flowing, complex sound. Nice assortment of tunes, not the usual.

    I have played classical piano for many years, but have gotten into slow jazz ballads as they are fun to play at parties and you can be a little sloppy, in style and sobriety, and still sound good with this type of music. The jazz series books by Hal L. are great - chords can be beefy and exciting, yet very playable. I have been searching for this type of book for a long time - buy it, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Perfect for late intermediate/early advanced pianists. I took piano lessons from a Baptist preacher's wife, so "improvisation" was not a skill I learned. It's nice to be able to play jazz and have it sound "jazzy" reading music sheet music, and not lead sheets. I bought a few other books in the series and they are all great.

    This is a collection of tunes from the 30's and 40's. Good arrangements that are challenging but playable after 3 or 4 tries. This review is based on the first 5 tunes in the book as I haven't had the book that long and that's as far as I've got, however this is the third book I've purchased in this series and haven't been disappointed yet.

    Intermediate to early advanced arrangements. I like "Misty" and "I Guess I'll Hang my Tears Out to Dry", but there are many great standards covered in this volume.

    Good for more advanced player rather than beginner. Like the arrangements.

    Somehow they managed to simplify the arrangements so that they still sound professional, but not so tricky that only a gifted few can play them. I have many sheet music transcriptions of Bill Evan, Chick Corea, Mehegan jazz studies, etc that I purchased over the years, but most are so technically challenging that you can forget about getting in a relaxed groove, so I ended up just playing some playable classical sheet music from time to time to keep in practice. But this jazz piano series of Hal Leonard has really filled a need, in my opinion.
