This stylish piano album takes players on a musical tour of autumn, presenting well-loved songs such as 'September in the Rain', 'Witchcraft', and '(Somewhere) Over the Rainbow' and original compositions on other seasonal themes. The nine pieces reflect a wide variety of jazz styles, including swing, waltz, calypso, and shuffle, and draw on artists such as Billie Holiday, Keith Jarrett, Stan Getz, and Frank Sinatra. With fully notated rhythms, grooves, and improvisations, Jazz in Autumn is the perfect collection for pianists looking for that authentic sound.

Review:

Haar nieuwste album Jazz in Autumn is net uitgekomen en laat vooral een warme, nostalgische kant van de herfst horen. De herfst van regenbogen, regenachtige dagen, ritselende bladeren en uitbundige Halloween. De herfstkleuren en -klanken vertaald in ritmes en harmonieA"n van swing, vals, calypso en shuffle. Jazz in Autumn is niet geschikt voor beginners en iets te ingewikkeld als introductie in jazz ritmes, maar voor gevorderde leerlingen en pianisten met meer affiniteit met jazzstijlen, kan deze collectie van arrangementen van Billie Holiday, Keith Jarrett, Stan Getz, James Melton en Frank Sinatra zowel aangenaam als leerzaam zijn. Als ervaren docent laat Iles zien hoe een melodie vanuit een improvisatie zicht ontvouwt, hoe zelfs een geringste variatie in ritme een nieuwe wending kan betekenen en hoe bij het verplaatsen van accenten zelfs een traditioneel volkslied als het Ierse Danny Boy als jazz standard klinkt. * Olga de Kort, PianoBulletin, December 2014 * The indefatigable performer-composer-music educator Nikki Iles completes her seasonal survey with a typically charming, understated and touching autumnal anthology. Many styles are on offer here, from swing standards through to contemporary music . . . Classically trained players could find Iles's approach particularly useful as they need only play exactly what is written in order to produce an authoritative and complete performance in itself . . . The book is something of a bargain and includes a wonderful CD with Iles playing all nine pieces exquisitely, showing subtle accentuation, carefully gauged rubato and exquisite tonal variety and voicing within an essentially hushed sonic perspective. Strongly recommended. * Murray Mclachlan, International Piano, November 2014 *
