Phat Piano Improvs
Big Phat Jazz Piano Solos (Alfred Music) is an intermediate to late-intermediate book by pianist and bandleader Gordon Goodwin. Musically challenging but technically accessible, the book’s 10 Big Phat Band classics—recomposed by Goodwin—capture the essence of the original versions. The solos reflect Goodwin’s ability to combine jazz improvisation with a variety of musical styles, including Latin, rock and funk. Titles include “Settle Down,” “Everlasting,” “The Jazz Police,” “Brother Bones” and more.
