Elings, Rik-Moments of Swing
10 Original Songs in Jazz, Latin & Swing
The ten original works in this book/CD pack by Rik Elings are largely based on the chord charts of well-known jazz standards. Creating new melodies for existing charts is a composition technique often used by jazz musicians.

The CD includes solos with accompaniment as well as accompaniment-only tracks for each piece.
