Reviews

Jazz music and Christmas have a beautifully nostalgic association for many, and it's no surprise that jazz pianist Nikki Iles' Jazz on a Winter's Night has been such a huge success since its 2009 publication, spawning outstanding sequels in Jazz in Springtime, Jazz on a Summer's Day and Jazz in Autumn, - each including a selection of seasonally themed jazz standards and originals from Nikki herself . . . Jazz on a Winter's Night has established itself as my all-time favourite Christmas music book. * www.pianodao.com *
An authentic jazz sound can be easily created using Nikki's notated rhythms, grooves, harmonies and solos, and the expertise of the arranger guides players through the diversity of jazz characters. These stylish arrangements and compositions are the perfect introduction to jazz. * Piano Professional, September 2018 *
