For those of you who are fans of Jennifer Linn’s Journey Through the Classics series by Hal Leonard, you can now purchase the complete set Journey Through the Classicsof 98 pieces in one convenient compilation aptly titled Journey Through the Classics Complete. Books 1–4 have been combined in sequential order to provide a seamless transition from elementary to intermediate level classical repertoire. The well-rounded selection of works along with the collection’s tasteful design and excellent price make this an essential addition for any beginning pianist’s library.
















Also of particular note is the recent passing of jazz legend Dave Brubeck, having lived just one day shy of his 92nd birthday. Simply BrubeckDuring his lifetime he created many timeless standards that continue to shape the generations of jazz musicians who follow him. While there haven’t been any recent releases of Brubeck’s music for solo piano, one older title sticks out as a great introduction to his works. Alfred Music Publishing’s Simply Brubeck, arranged by Bruce Nelson, offers 26 selections of the composer’s vast library of jazz standards in an easy-to-read format that includes phrase markings, articulations, fingering and dynamics, as well as a larger print size. Perfect for the Late Intermediate pianist looking for accessible arrangements of one of the century’s greatest artists.

The next time you stop by West Music, be sure to ask one of our associates to pull a copy of Journey Through the Classics Complete and Simply Brubeck.
