Chris Norton does it again with his unique blend of traditional technique with popular styles. Students will learn all about technique - rhythm, co-ordination and listening, but they'll be having so much fun, they won't know they're doing it!

Press Reviews

"This is not just more of the same, far from it! All the pieces work on their own or with the CD combo backing. The composer sees it it as building more than just jazz feel and technique. Musicianship, ensemble skills, improvisation and co-ordination - all these are addressed marvellously. He believes this is Microjazz for the next generation, more dramatic, more interactive and certainly smarter to look at.  I can't argue with this! It looks and sounds great - another Boosey/Norton surefire success"
(Piano Magazine)

"Taking the chilled out sounds popularised by Moby as a reference point, Smooth Grooves enables you to be really cool while still being completely modern in sound. Groovy laid-back beats complement piano parts that are sweetly and soulfully melodic. Shave all your hair off, eat vegetarian food and buy yourself some wraparounds - you're going to make everyone feel really s-m-o-o-t-h, even yourself!"
(Chris Norton)
