Here are the sample pages for the duet written over the chord changes of Oh, Baby!
“These “trad jazz” duets are pure FUN! If you like traditional New Orleans jazz you’ll love these – based on tunes like Bill Bailey, Baby Face, Bye Bye Blackbird, and When You’re Smilin’. My wife and I read through these duets in a little over an hour Friday night. I think we had to stop on the second page of every tune. Rich just loves throwing you a curve just when you think you’ve settled into a groove. These are very playable, note-wise, not a lot of accidentals. But best of all, these tunes are just toe tappin’, go home whistlin’ fun.” — STEVE EVANS, Trumpeter, Lykens, PA
