Three great pizzicato pieces which are useful as both educational or concert repertoire. Jazz Sonatine is a small three movement suite dedicated to three American jazz-greats - Paul Chambers, Charles Mingus, Scott LaFaro. Di-Ba-Dum is rhythmically exciting and inventive contrasting jazz idioms with easy contemporary styles, and is dedicated to Richard Davis. Pizzicato Waltz combines classical and jazz styles with some treble clef work and was written for David Heyes and Bass-Fest.

"Teppo Hauta-aho has certainly come up trumps with this book of pizzicato pieces...I would definitely recommend adding this volume to anyone's collection and eagerly await Book Two." [Bass News]
