    Smokin Duets - Modern Jazz Duets, v.2

    Unlike most duets, these pieces were designed to serve many purposes. First and foremost they are intended to be fun to play and listen to, but each of them is challenging and filled with musical problems comparable to those found in professional playing situations. Some of the uses to which these duets might be put are: Developing sight reading skills (players are encouraged to vary the tempo, dynamics, phrasing as well as switch parts); Learning to recognize and interpret some of the most commonly used jazz figures; Developing a feel for swing; developing facility and technique; developing transpositional skills. -David N. Baker.

    Contains: Stanky Feets; Ballad; The Triple B; The Dude; Auev; The Funnytime Calypso; The Bebob Children; Robinsong. Challenging technical demands in terms of finger dexterity, flexibility, general facility, and range (up to high D# above the staff). Chord symbols written above the staff. Composer encourages that these duets are also accompanied by a rhythm section. Each duet is approximately 5-7 pages long. 50 pages. -pc
