In The Key of Jazz, Duets - Piano - Olson/McLean

What a fun book for lovers of four-hand music! Following the success of the In the Key of Jazz solo books, Olson and McLean team up again with a great new set of original jazz duets, with styles ranging from swing to Cuban salsa, and a gorgeous new ballad, Alone in a Crowd. The “call and answer” riffs float between the second and primo parts in an improvisatory manner using jazz idioms such as barrelhouse blues and walking bass. The syncopations will sharpen your students’ rhythmic and ensemble skills. Titles include: Da Blooz; Groove Town; That’s What; Ode to the Bass Player; and Habana Vieja.
