Pianist Steve Allee creates an intimate setting with solo piano accompaniment for 12 of the greatest ballads.
Each song is recorded in 2 keys – one for lower voices and one for higher voices – ensuring all singers, men and women! Selected songs are presented in two tempos (ballad and medium tempo) on separate tracks, adding excitement and variety to these classics. Melody, lyrics, and chord changes are clearly presented in the book and the pianist on the CD provides singer-friendly intros and voice leading.
Note: The book contains C parts only – no transposed parts for Bb, Eb, or bass clef instruments, but horn players will love playing and practicing in singer’s keys.
