JOHN BRIMHALL
GREAT MUSIC MADE EASY
FOR PIANO SOLO

John Brimhall is by far the best known and best-selling piano music arranger of all time. He has designed this special series for Carl Fischer to be a library, not just of classical piano music, but of music by some of music history’s greatest composers in all musical genres. Divided into two series, the “Composers” and “Masterworks,” these skillful arrangements capture the essence of the original composition in easy-to-play versions that stay faithful to the original musical intent. Each volume also contains biographical information on the composers. The easy-to-read engraving and meticulous fingering make these books valuable for the study of the masters of music literature by intermediate and developing players of all ages.

A NEW WAY OF GROOVIN’
Combining Jazz and Rumba for a New Sound on the Drumset
by Ignacio Berroa

Author of the highly successful Groovin’ in Clave (MU5), renowned Cuban Drummer Ignacio Berroa’s latest book with CD expands on the concepts introduced in the earlier book. The object this time is to integrate aspects of Jazz-Style drumming with the Afro-Cuban inflected rock and funk rhythms that were explored in Groovin’ in Clave. By combining elements from both books, the player will be able to move freely among several styles of music – Jazz, Rock, Funk and Latin – adding an exciting depth and variety to the playing by letting the musical styles be both separate and fused, depending on the musical situation and the drummer’s own inspiration. The CD is designed to demonstrate the various grooves in the book and includes play-along songs that give the player chances to use the grooves in context and become a part of a great sounding band.
MU10 – A New Way of Groovin’ – Berroa – Drumset – Book & CD – $24.95 (ISBN 0-8258-4710-9)

ALSO AVAILABLE:

  • MU5 – Groovin’ in Clave – Berroa – Drumset – Book & CD – $24.95 (ISBN 0-8258-3605-0)
