A delightful Jazz-inspired collection for Bb Clarinet and Piano with inspiring full demo/backing tracks, by Chris Lawry and Keri Degg.
Christmas Jazz Volume 2 consists of five festive arrangements including smoochy ballads (The Holly and the Ivy, and Away in a manger, but also tunes with serious groove factor (O Holy Night - with a funk groove/cheeky quality with optional growl/flutter tongue), plus Ukrainian Folk Carol in a crazy swing style (you'll probably recognise it my a different name though ;), and Deck the halls (in a minor key, inspired by the beautiful music of Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla).
As well as featuring the original tune, each piece has an element of written out accessible solo; enabling you to sound like a pro. The pieces are not too advanced (although Ukrainian Folk Carol is perhaps around grade 6-7), and players of intermediate ability will be able to play all without any difficulty. Some, (Away in a manger, and The Holly and the Ivy for instance) are even more accessible; around grade 3-4.
Christmas Jazz Volume 2 is also available in Bb (Tenor/Soprano) Sax and Piano, Flute, and Eb Sax (alto or baritone) editions.
