Three complete numbers for the price of one. What a deal! This works as a set of three- medium, slow, fast; or each could be played alone. This would be just what you need for picking up a little more interest from your students or just something fun to play with a friend. The listening example starts with the swing number, fades into the ballade, then concludes with part of the funk tune.
