Jazz For All


Arrangements and instructional material for all harpists to improve their jazz skills

German harpist Evelyn Huber has released three new books of arrangements, published by DUX (www.dux-verlag.de).

The first volume is Five Pieces for Celtic Harp for the intermediate to advanced player. It contains a variety of music, but all with a jazzy feel.

“Tristano” is a medieval melody and most harpists are familiar with the well-known “Carolan’s Concerto.” Gershwin’s “Summertime” is an adaptation of an arrangement by Deborah Henson-Conant and Asita Hamidi. “Dillasdie” is an original composition by Huber. The final entry is a combination of a traditional Irish melody, “Down the Hill,” followed by Huber’s original, “Achill Sound.” There are no lever changes in any piece.
