This handy, pocket sized paperback is easy to throw in a bag or tuck into an instrument case. With a melody line in treble cleff, chord symbols and lyrics, it also has a guitar chord guide in the back. Full of real standards like "Caravan," "Misty," and "Take the A Train," the book covers most of your bases when it comes to playing common rep. Most of the tunes are laid out on a single sheet, though a few do require page turns. Also, the lack of spiral binding could makes it hard to keep on a music stand. However, I can't complain about the price. This book is a good buy.

This is a great book if you are ONLY looking for the melody, or lyrics, or chords. I came across this book thinking, great, so many songs. I was disapointed when I realized what it was. I can't complain. The price is right.
