There are a few pieces in this book which I am finding very addictive to play and hum when I am not playing; my favourite being 'It Might as well be Spring'. It is a samba with some great harmonies and fairly complex rhythms. I had to listen to the track on the CD several times to get them right. Everyone who has heard this one enjoys it. The other one that I really like is, 'Spring can really Hang You up the Most' which is a ballad with varying tempos - free time, then slow steady, then double time etc The free time section gives scope to be expressive and put your own interpretation on it. I also like 'May Song' which is a folk song arranged by Nikki Iles.
So, in my opinion, another great book of pieces that are refreshing change from normal jazz standards. I have bought three extra books to give as presents.
