The Cloud Forest 
Edwin McLean
Preview -


JS2003 / 8.95
For 13 students–six pianists on two pianos, three more pianists each on an electric piano (keyboard), and four percussionists playing on simple, homemade instruments. Each player represents a sound in the forest. Rather than reading a score, the musicians memorize a single gesture, or ‘lick” and count seconds before entering and repeating their lick. It lasts approximately 4 minutes, and will be a refreshing addition to your recitals! Check out the piece on youtube.

In the Key of Jazz — Duets 
Kevin Olson and Edwin McLean
Preview -


FJH2199 / 8.50
What a fun book for lovers of four-hand music! Following the success of the In the Key of Jazz solo books, Olson and McLean team up again with a great new set of original jazz duets, with styles ranging from swing to Cuban salsa, and a gorgeous new ballad, Alone in a Crowd. The “call and answer” riffs float between the second and primo parts in an improvisatory manner using jazz idioms such as barrelhouse blues and walking bass. The syncopations will sharpen your students’ rhythmic and ensemble skills. Titles include: Da Blooz; Groove Town; That’s What; Ode to the Bass Player; and Habana Vieja.

Jazz Improv 
Edwin McLean and Kevin Olson
Preview -


FJH2248 / 8.95
Jazz Improv is a core book of the Jazz in Focus Library, introducing students to seventh chords, the ii-V-I chord progression, and approach tones. As with the two previous improv books, the step-by-step approach encompassing: 1) a simple concept, 2) a short demonstration piece, 3) riffs for improvising, and 4) a free improvisation chart assures steady progress and opens the door to more advanced study. Jazz Improv is an essential introduction for any piano student who wants to begin the study of jazz, and the material is flexible enough to be used by younger as well as more experienced players.

JH1000 / 11.95
Here is a winning combination of old and new. This three-movement sonata contrasts the traditional sound of the harpsichord with tonality and syncopations common to popular music and jazz. There are guitar-like moments in the first and third movements, while the second alternates between the baroque and the modern. McLean brings all the character of the instrument to light.

Sonatina No. 3 
Edwin McLean
Preview -


W9408 / 3.95
The first movement in G Major features a syncopated melody that calls for a crisp staccato and "ritmo preciso." This tune stays in your head long after you've played it. The second movement in D minor has a lovely lyrical melody, and one wishes it were longer than 2 pages! The flashy third movement is very fast, requiring frequent hand shifts and makes a great ending to this sophisticated yet accessible sonatina.
