By Richard Byrd
For Two Flutes
Published by Eighth Note Publications
Includes score and parts
The purpose of these duets is to provide players challenging jazz duets based on the chord changes to standard jazz tunes. These are not beginning jazz duets. The titles of these duets are an obvious allusion to the titles of the standard jazz tunes. Volume 2 contains the following duets with their respective jazz standard titles: 1) “NOLA Street Walk” (Perdido), 2) “On Blue Shark Avenue” (On Green Dolphin Street), 3) “A Part of You” (All of Me), 4) “Fall Trees” (Autumn Leaves), and 5) “Watermelon Woman” (Watermelon Man). The tempos of the duets were selected to match the tempos used on the jazz standards found on the website jazzstandards.com; however, players are welcome to play these duets at any tempo (faster or slower) they feel comfortable playing.
