If you are sitting the ABRSM Jazz piano course (which I am) you have to learn three pieces - one from each each of the three sections of this book: blues, standards and contemporary. There's a good range of pieces in this grade and anyone who is not studying the exams but would like to try the pieces might enjoy these. There is a section in each piece with chords and scale suggestions for improvising and a few brave souls have shared their exam prepped pieces on youtube so you can get a flavour of how they might be tackled. There is a CD covering the music which also includes some of the pieces played by a band that you can play along with and some advice on sitting the exam.
