For a long time now, Manfred Schmitz's "Jazz Parnassus" has been the last word on jazz piano playing. But times have changed, and the book, which supplies everything one needs to teach - and learn! - jazz at the piano, is being replaced: welcome to the "New Jazz Parnassus!" After all, even a winning concept can be improved. The new edition incorporates the experiences of decades of teaching and countless workshops.
Schmitz has added many new pieces and has considerably simplified the notation so as to make it easier to grasp. The pieces have also been grouped together into progressively-oriented teaching units.
Volumes 1 and 2 have been awarded the German Music Edition Prize 2003.
