Performances of each piece, played by John Kember.

The pieces in this book are from the Golden Age of song writing, which have stood the test of time to become 'standards' for jazz musicians as well as singers. They represent the pinnacle of the art of melody writing, combining brilliant lyrics with wonderful harmonies. This series aims to help aspiring jazz pianists (whether soloists, accompanists to singers or instrumentalists, or pianists in a band or jazz group) to understand and get these jazz standards firmly 'under their fingers'.

What they say

“beautifully crafted arrangements of jazz and pop standards ... a gift to anyone who wants to entertain” “John Kember has produced some more beautifully crafted arrangements of jazz and pop standards ... a gift to anyone who wants to entertain, either alone or with others. ... Each is then turned into a characterful piano piece, with plenty of rhythmic variation and syncopation, and some fine examples of bass and inner-part melodies.”
Nancy Litten, 'Piano Professional', Summer 2011
