"Playing For Singers" is one of the first books to explore, in depth, the art of accompaniment for the jazz and cabaret pianist.
"Playing For Singers" covers all the, often forgotten, fundamentals of playing for vocalists.
A comprehensive resource for everyone; from the beginning jazz pianist, to the crusty old pro needing a tune-up for his/her next accompanying gig.
In "Playing For Singers" Mike Greensill brings his many years of accompanying experience to bear in exploring, in detail, the in's and out's of the accompanist's art as it applies to the performance of the "Great American Songbook".
"In a world deeply populated with music books, this a special one that teaches how to accompany in an insightful and approachable way. Thanks to Mike's musical wisdom and experience, it fills a gap that finally addresses how to really do it!"
"Mike Greensill's Playing for Singers is a most valuable and thorough resource and reference, a welcome addition to every accompanist's library. . . Bravo Mike!"
.............Lee Musiker (accompanist to Tony Bennett)
