Additional Information

(Fake Book). The Real Books are the best-selling jazz books of all time. Since the 1970s, musicians have trusted these volumes to get them through every gig, night after night. The problem is that the books were illegally produced and distributed, without any regard to copyright law, or royalties paid to the composers who created these musical masterpieces. Hal Leonard is very proud to present the first legitimate and legal editions of these books ever produced. You won't even notice the difference, other than that all of the notorious errors have been fixed: the covers and typeface look the same, the song list is nearly identical, and the price for our edition is even cheaper than the original! Every conscientious musician will appreciate that these books are now produced accurately and ethically, benefitting the songwriters that we owe for some of the greatest tunes of all time! Includes 400 songs: All Blues * Au Privave * Autumn Leaves * Black Orpheus * Bluesette * Body and Soul * Bright Size Life * Con Alma * Dolphin Dance * Don't Get Around Much Anymore * Easy Living * Epistrophy * Falling in Love with Love * Footprints * Four on Six * Giant Steps * Have You Met Miss Jones? * How High the Moon * I'll Remember April * Impressions * Lullaby of Birdland * Misty * My Funny Valentine * Oleo * Red Clay * Satin Doll * Sidewinder * Stella by Starlight * Take Five * There Is No Greater Love * Wave * and hundreds more! Editions also available in B-flat, E-flat, and Bass Clef. Looking for a particular song? Check out the Real Book Songfinder here.

I have about 20 fake books including many Real Books, and find them useful. I got this specific one because a jazz jam I go to usually uses this one, and is really good for high school students learning their chops. Incidentally I learned from a respected jazz player/instructor recently that sometimes the scores (fake sheets) written for books like this are often written by academicians who will occasionally simplify the chord progressions to emphasize ii/V/Is, to conform to what is being taught. I was told that the sheet music, while expensive, is usually if not always more reliable if you need the original progressions. 'However, the Real Book series, in my experience, are generally quite reliable for jams and general playing. They wouldn't be reliable nor appropriate for professional performances for obvious reasons, (copyright laws, etc.) I am not knowledgeable enough to say whether this "academicians" practice would be an important effect. The people I play with are... Read more
Great tunes, great format, but just doesn't have as good a song selection as the bootleg version. No "Stardust," no "Night and Day," no "One More for my Baby (and One More for the Road)," etc., etc., etc. On the other hand, songwriters should be comoensated fairly for their work, and there are still a ton of great, invaluable tunes here, set up to minimize page-turning mid-song and presented in a clean, clear, unfussy format. If you like jazz, you should have this.
If you're buying the Kindle edition to use while playing in a band, in real time, you may want to rethink that. I play in a jazz ensemble where we've been using the older Real Books for years. We decided to go legit, but i opted for the Kindle versions of Sixth Edition Vol. I and II on my Surface. These are large books and the time it takes to go to the TOC and then to the tune you want is just too long. Searching is no better. Switching between the books is even worse, since Kindle only handles one book at a time. Haven't gotten any feedback on Kindle on iPad, but I would be surprised if it were any better.
