Marilynn Ham is hands down a favorite arranger of mine. This book is less challenging than her other books but still has that vintage Marilynn Ham sound. The beauty of this book is that it allows the performer to focus on the fact that playing tastefully is much more important than doing all that you CAN do in a piano piece and cramming all the fancy runs and arpeggios you can into a song. Marilynn Ham is a gifted pianist and always knows how to make a song sound impressive but tasteful. Sometimes, that warrants dazzling arpeggios and runs and other times it is better to keep it a little more conservative because often times, less is more. GREAT GREAT book! Marilynn Ham never disappoints and her work is very frequently featured on BBN!
