Musician, teacher and composer J. Douglas Esmond reinterprets timeless classical melodies in the jazz style in this musical journey through some of the world's most revered musical pieces. Original scores from Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart and other greats are given new time signatures and chord voicings, bringing them new life and expanding upon the emotion of each composition while retaining the touchstone of their original themes.

Whether you're a fan of classical or jazz or just want to expand your musical taste and repertoire, you'll find something here to love. The music is presented in both standard notation and easy-to-read tablature.
