Jazz in Autumn - Violin
By Nikki Iles.
This stylish album for violin and piano takes players on a musical tour of autumn, presenting well-loved songs such as September in the Rain, Autumn Leaves, Danny Boy, and (Somewhere) Over the Rainbow and original compositions on other seasonal themes. The nine pieces reflect a wide variety of jazz styles, including swing, blues, calypso, and bossa nova, and draw on artists such as Yehudi Menuhin, Stephane Grappelli, Didier Lockwood, and Regina Carter. With fully notated rhythms, grooves, and improvisations, Violin Jazz in Autumn is the perfect collection for instrumentalists looking for that authentic sound.
