I have reviewed a bumper selection of great music for the intermediate players  – so let’s start with the original repertoire, followed by a section for more jazzy publications:

“In short, the music throughout this collection is hauntingly beautiful. These aren’t simply pieces which I will enjoy listening to and teaching in the coming months – this is music which I anticipate loving and playing for the rest of my life.
