I bought Lerner's Memorable Jazz Standards and Cocktail Jazz Standards, but returned both. Occasionally there are more runs and fills than necessary, but you can leave those out if you want. I found that my sight-reading improved after going through the book, and while I may use only 3-4 of the arrangements now I will probably return to it when a gig calls for cocktail, restaurant or background music.

Cool, jazzy arrangements of 23 most-requested standards at the piano lounge, including: Blue Moon Cocktails for Two Dream a Little Dream of Me Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words) Georgia on My Mind Hey There I Left My Heart in San Francisco I'm in the Mood for Love The Lady Is a Tramp Lullaby of Birdland Mack the Knife .

This offering provides a collection of low energy solo piano arrangements. It is presented as a piano score (e.g. does not include a vocal score with lyrics and the melody). The content difficulty is an SMP 3 - 5 (if not for the "jazzy" rhythm and four-note chords, it would be a solid 3).

The companion CD features all 15 performances in the same deliberate, metered style (counted as "adagio", despite being marked "moderate/freely"); it is only suitable as a learning aid. The classic melodies are occasionally present in each arrangement, though most listeners will struggle to identify any of these as standards. Audiences and performers will quickly become bored with the pieces if played as written (especially if performed in series - except for the key changes, listeners may not realize you're playing a different piece).

Beginning pianists and jazz newcomers may struggle with the lazy notation, as it lacks chord references, pedaling notation, dynamics, articulation marks, fingering, etc.... (a beginner would likely not be able to perform any of the pieces, either as intended or in a remotely recognizable way, without the companion CD).

Intermediate-Advanced and more skillful pianists will be underwhelmed by the technical challenges presented; there are literally NO ornamentals, runs, arpeggios, or stylistic figures in the *entire collection*. There are also very few interesting musical concepts to borrow at this level.

It is unlikely that you would ever hear music performed in this style at a cocktail bar (at least played by a professional pianist). Use sparingly or perhaps after a particularly energetic and interesting score (not found in this book).

I bought both this and the (just terrible IMO) Jazzy Standards. If Amazon had placed a sample of the tracks on their pages, I would have skipped both.

Another reviewer called the playing "clunky." Similar to his other Jazzy Standards, the playing is far from fluid and sounds more like an intermediate student than a teacher. He kind of stabs at the chords and leaves the mellifluous The Way You Look Tonight and When Sunny Gets Blue sounding ragged and staccato to my ear.

I can't use these arrangements and I suspect you can't either. I would return both books if I could.

Very disappointed in the arrangements. Was looking for something much more advanced. These are gradeschool arrangements. Wish I could have seen the inside before ordering.

I bought Lerner's Memorable Jazz Standards and Cocktail Jazz Standards, but returned both. I am looking for more advanced pieces than these. Also, many of the arrangements focus in the upper octaves, which I don't particularly enjoy playing or listening to. Not being able to see the music arrangements before buying makes it difficult to choose wisely, but since I live in an area with few music stores, my options are limited.

The arrangements seem a little strange sometimes but it's fun to play.

This Hal leonard package, in my view is excellent value.
O.K.!!! The recording sounds like some 'old codger' at the piano, who has probably played these tunes more times than I have wiped my bottom!
The fluctuating tempo gives the game away and the arrangements are probably in promptu, based on many years of knowledge and experience. Why I bet they even hooked him up to a great MIDI Grand, then, after some sympathetic editing, voila! A perfectly good print out.
Who cares? In my view, what's great about this is that we can listen to, and read the arrangements, Forget having the chords! Look at the theory behind the performance and build your own arrangements. This guy oozes musicality. He probably breathes it, sweats it and poots it!.
This book and CD is awesome. The concept of value and I, look forward to more from the same source- a GREAT piano arranger and a positive publisher,
Please excuse the aliteration.
Thanks Amazon!

Very nicely written. And great that it comes with an audio CD. But it doesn't have chords above what is written.... not too good.

The piano arrangements are nice and the CD is a big bonus. BUT there are no lyrics. It didn't say one way or the other in the description, but because these are songs people like to sing, I thought they would be printed. I am going to give the book away to a non-singer, since it's not very good for me.
