Description

This set of moderately challenging pitch-centric and conservative encore-ish pieces is fun to play. The various styles encompass Latin, blues, and contemporary popular. The music, rarely ascending past the middle register and topping out at C5, sometimes features very busy passagework that is comfortable, but occasionally rhythmically complex.
