A Perfect 10, Book 3, is a collection of piano solos designed to promote musical excellence for the early intermediate-level pianist. Melody has chosen a favorite teaching piece from the four stylistic periods---Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary---and written six original pieces in Jazz, Blues, Ragtime, Latin, Ballad, and Showstopper styles. These 10 solos provide students with technical challenges as well as expressive opportunities for musical growth in mood, rhythm, melody, harmony, form, articulation, and dynamics. Students do not have to be an Olympic hopeful to achieve a perfect "10," but they might feel like one as they practice and perform these selections! Titles: * Arabesque * Blue Sky Rag * Cool Cats * Minuet in D Minor * Sassy Samba * Snake Charmer Blues * Sonatina in C Major * Spring Storm * The Village Maidens

Do you want to know when Duke Ellington was king of The Cotton Club? Have you ever wondered how old Miles Davis was when he got his first trumpet? From birth dates to gig dates and from recordings to television specials, Leonard Feather and Ira Gitler have left no stone unturned in their quest for accurate, detailed information on the careers of 3.300 jazz musicians from around the world. We learn that Duke Ellington worked his magic at The Cotton Club from 1927 to 1931, and that on Miles Davis's thirteenth birthday, his father gave him his first trumpet. Jazz is fast moving, and this edition clearly and concisely maps out an often dizzying web of professional associations. We find, for instance, that when Miles Davis was a St. Louis teenager he encountered Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie for the first time. This meeting proved fateful, and by 1945 a nineteen-year-old Davis had left Juilliard to play with Parker on 52nd Street. Knowledge of these professional alliances, along with the countless others chronicled in this book, are central to tracing the development of significant jazz movements, such as the "cool jazz" that became one of Miles Davis's hallmarks. Arranged alphabetically according to last name, each entry of this book chronologically lists the highlights of every jazz musician's career. Highly accessible and vigorously researched, The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz is, quite simply, the most comprehensive jazz encyclopedia available.
