Not Just Another Jazz Book Series Released by Alfred Music

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, July 17, 2013
From popular composer and arranger, Mike Springer, comes the new series, Not Just Another Jazz Book, Books 1, 2, and 3. This series for piano includes original compositions that feature swing, blues, ragtime, and Latin styles for early intermediate, intermediate, and late intermediate pianists.

The Not Just Another Jazz Book series provides carefully-graded arrangements, perfect for concerts, parties, or recitals. Each book in this growing series is unique, containing innovative and fun orchestrated tracks for each solo. Each piece has three different recordings to aid in practicing and creating the sense of playing in a jazz trio, including a fully-orchestrated demo track, a background track without the piano at a slower tempo, and the background track without piano at the performance tempo.

“When composing for any level, I get great satisfaction in creating music that is fresh and interesting,” said Springer. “I know from experience with my own studio that jazz is a top choice for students of all ages and they will work very hard to play pieces they find fun, even if they are initially challenging.”

The Not Just Another Jazz Book series (00-40527, 00-40528, and 00-40529) is now available at music retail stores for $8.99 each and at alfred.com/piano.
