The book meets my expectations. I have played a number of Preston Keys arrangements from other books, and I enjoy his style of music. He arranges standards in a cocktail jazz style that sounds lush, but is fairly easy to play. The book also includes a couple of originals by Keys, and they are very nice, too.
Great simple arrangements for entertaining your self or your friends.
the first book had some great chords this one is grossly lacking. i thought i was getting a continuation of volume 1; instead i got a beginners book by comparison.
As an adult learner in piano the title appealed to me, but the arrangements may be simpler than the original, but they are not simple for the beginner. They should show an example of a page from one of the songs in the book so that you could judge if it is in your skill level.
Nice selection of songs though.
I bought her first volume and loved it so much, I wanted more so I ordered volume 2. SAVE YOUR MONEY - it is nothing like volume 1. All the beautiful harmonies are gone and so are half the notes. While I can improvise, I don't have what's necessary to fill in the complex chords she used in the first volume. I was extremely disappointed - especially for the money. If you are a beginner pianist perhaps you would find this volume okay to play from, but I play for formal dinner at a country club and was wanting more from this book than what I got. The first book took some time to learn all the songs,mainly because of all the accidentals and complex harmonies, but now that I have them down, I love ending up the night playing some of these numbers and the people enjoy them. Unfortunately, that is not the case with volume 2. The song choice is not great and there was not much effort put into the arrangements. I wanted to try to complain directly to the company, but couldn't find any information on who to contact. This is truly one of the worst books I have ever purchased for the money. And the sad thing is that Preston Keys is a brilliant arranger, as exemplified in her first book. I want to order her Simply Elegant Piano I, but I just don't know which Preston Keys I'll get.
