I'd like to own this book! It's a comprehensive collection of complex and delicious pieces. I grabbed it from the library to find ideas for arrangements and that led me into discovering the music Brad Mehldau wrote for Renée Fleming, which is truly exceptional writing both for her amazing voice and for it's jazz harmonies. I highly recommend this collection for upper-level composers and advanced singers for study and inspiration.
