A delightful Jazz-inspired collection for Bb Clarinet and Piano with demo/backing tracks, by Chris Lawry and Keri Degg.
Christmas Jazz for Bb Clarinet Volume 1 consists of five festive arrangements including smoochy ballads (Silent Night, and The First Nowell (Noel) but also tunes with serious groove factor (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is one), plus I saw Three Ships (complete with sleigh bells), and Hark The Herald (in 5/4 time). A set of demonstration (clarinet with backing), and backing tracks are included with the book (with either CD option, or via download using the link provided, depending on which option you have chosen,or the fully emailed PDF/MP3 edition).
As well as featuring the original tune, each piece has an element of written out accessible clarinet solo; enabling you to sound like a pro. The pieces are not too advanced, and players of intermediate ability will be able to play all without any difficulty. Some, (The First Nowell, and Silent Night for instance) are even more accessible; around grade 3-4.
Christmas Jazz Collection is also available in Bb (Sop/Tenor) Sax, Eb Sax, and Flute editions. The pieces are also available individually as PDF/MP3 Email delivery at £2.99 GBP.
