Description

From the bestselling author of Improvising Blues Piano, Exploring Jazz Piano 1 & 2 and Exploring Latin Piano comes a collection of new Jazz, Latin and contemporary repertoire for solo piano.

This collection is aimed at pianists looking to explore these styles in more depth, or those looking to expand their musical horizons – an ideal accompaniment to other Tim Richards publications. 

  • Original pieces by Tim Richards, as well as new arrangements of standards by two of the most iconic composers in jazz: Thelonious Monk and Duke Ellington
  • Notes on interpretation, technique, theory and performance
  • Recordings of all pieces played by Tim are included
  • Most pieces include fully notated improvisations
  • Chord symbols are provided to encourage you to play your own solos too.

Easy pieces at the beginning of the book give way to more challenging ones later on, suitable for intermediate to advanced players.



"The pieces in this collection are uniquely contrasting, charming and interesting… A great way to introduce jazz and improvisation skills to classically trained pianists."American Music Teacher Magazine

“The pieces… are uniformly excellent, brilliantly encapsulating their various styles… This is outstanding material…”PIANODAO

“A new collection of contemporary repertoire for solo piano from the successful UK pianist, composer, and educator.
The pieces… which ascend in difficulty from intermediate to advanced as the book progresses, are all composed by Richards, with the exception of his arrangements of “Well, You Needn’t” and “Come Sunday”… He’s a fine composer. Overall, they’re a little reminiscent of those in the graded piano books of the ABRSM jazz piano syllabus, offering the opportunity to play notated scores and improvise around repeated chord sequences, although each of the pieces comes with more accompanying information for the student, which can only be helpful.”
