This is by far the best book on learning to play jazz piano that I have ever discovered. The difference with this one is its logical approach, the progression from piece to piece (with, it must be said, a fairly steep learning curve) - gives one the confidence to "have a go" and a feeling of "I can do this - with a bit more practice time!" Every morning I've been listening to the CD that comes with the book, and what an inspiration it is. If you really want to learn to play jazz piano, and you are willing and able to put in the hours practising (and that's exciting and rewarding in itself) then let this book be your step-by-step daily guide. I just want to say a big thank you to Tim Richards for this inspiring book and to Schott & Co. for a beautiful, practical publication.

Amazing book - I needed to refresh my jazz skills after years of classical playing. He is also an ABRSM jazz examiner! I am slowly working through it and enjoying it!
