For hardcore Jazzers and part-time jazz musicians, The New Real Book is a magnificent and meticulous fake-book collection of Jazz standards, Choice Standards and Pop-Fusion hits! This is an all-purpose book for jazz gigs, weddings, concerts and jam sessions and with over 200 songs inside there’s sure to be the very thing for the situation!
Every one of these tunes is a true gem and include terrific compositions by Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Jaco Pastorius, Jimmy Van Heusen and Thelonius Monk, to name but a few!
This is the C and Vocal version that includes the music and lyrics and, like all Sher Music fake books, it features composer-approved transcriptions, easy-to-read calligraphy, and many extras (such as sample bass lines, chord voicings and drum appendix) not found in conventional fake books.
Created by musicians, for musicians! Easy to work with and extremely worthwhile to have, this volume is the new standard in fake books!
