Here are the sample pages for the duet written over the chord changes of Just Friends:
“I played through Rich Willey’s duets with my son the other day, and we enjoyed them very much. The duets are dripping with the bebop language and all have a nice flow to them. They swing and are quite lyrical at the same time. I would recommend these duets for players young and old. I think there is something there for everyone.”
