Review from James: -
Do you want to sound pro? Do you? Then you want this piece. It's that simple. The left hand bass is a fantastic study for anyone who wants to play jazz piano with a sophisticated low end. The melody is embellished and articulated in classic form that will carry over to improvised jazz solos. From studio to stage, it's another hit from Gary.

Review from James:
This piece is so much fun! The opening riff played in unison by both hands, captures everyone's attention from the very start! Students who are natural "hams" will love the shout-out. The grace notes add a professional sound to the melody. This piece is destined to become a genuine classic.

Summer BreezeBuy at Piano Pronto
Summer Breeze is a relaxed bossa-nova style piano solo evocative of a lazy summer day.
Back To School BoogieBuy at Piano Pronto
Back to School Boogie is a lively riff blues with a good old boogie-woogie left hand. The middle section of this early-intermediate solo features a bluesy variation on the ABC song!

Review from Kristin:-
Truly beautiful in a serious, reverent, and gorgeously sad way. I love the opportunity for this piece to help students bring out the melody over the accompanying beat, but more than that, this one has a story... one perfectly reflected in the care and attention in the creation and arrangement of the music.
