This is a fun book to use! It introduces a wide variety of styles, from slow jazz melodies through to lively blues and ragtime. It's very useful for players who've started position-changing and ready to begin work on vibrato, and makes good use of other technical challenges such as double stopping. It also offers opportunities for improvisation in some pieces, rather than always sticking to the notes on the page.
Wade in the water. Wade in the water children. Wade in the water. God's gonna trouble the water.

"Many big band names played in the Hotel Pennsylvania's Cafe Rouge Ballroom, including the Glenn Miller Orchestra; the phone number became the inspiration for the Glenn Miller 1940 Top 5 Billboard hit song of the same name, written by Jerry Gray and Carl Sigman."
