This new edition is updated with yet another selection of current and classic tunes. Included in each song is the melody line, the chords, and the lyrics written for piano, vocal, guitar, and all "B Flat" instruments. This book even includes charts for over 855 guitar chords, as well as 9 different classified song listings. Great collection, well worth the price. Highly recommended.
I'll tell you why I like it... I have loads of Jazz fake books. This for sure *isn't* "The Real Book", but its a nice collection of more poppish tunes that I find useful to have along on a gig because sometimes people do request those '50s, '60s or '70s pop tunes or even older "less hip" standards and tunes. Its one thing to play for "musicians" but what about when you play in restaurants, at weddings, or for real people? It also has those tunes that vocalists tend to call but that instrumental Jazz ensembles don't play as often (you know, showtunes, Barbara Streisand Stuff, etc. etc.) and even lot's of stuff good for wedding gigs (I WILL SURVIVE, LOVE THEMES from films like TOP GUN and FOOTLOOSE, MANDY, MIDNIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA, THE "IN" CROWD, GREAT BALLS OF FIRE, GETTING TO KNOW YOU, QUE SERA SERA, even JIVE TALKIN', I SHOT THE SHERIFF. and '70s stuff like PIANO MAN, JIVE TALKIN', BRANDY (You're a Find Girl), CELEBRATE and JULIE, DO YOU LOVE ME ! ! !)
But its not just wedding band music... I've found some morsels in this one that aren't in most of my Jazz books... MORE TODAY THAN YESTERDAY, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TIME IT WAS, CRY ME A RIVER, THE JERSEY BOUNCE, SAMABA DE ORPHEAU, WALK ON THE WILD SIDE, etc.
I can't list all 1200 tunes for you as I mentioned, but here are some of the categories...Read more ›
If you work with vocalists, this book is a must-have and will save you a bundle over going to the music store and purchasing song arrangements one by one. Guitarists in your circle will appreciate this huge fake book as well.
Looking for many hours of playing and singing pleasure? Here's your book.

Great variety of songs all in one book. All listed alphabetically and then there are groupings... like Show tunes or Blues or Country, etc.Published 10 months ago by Ken Toffaletto
This book is wonderful.
It has lots of songs from various genres.
I will be using it for a long time.
A Lot of the complaints about this and many other fakebooks are that, the songs don't contain the instrumental parts or are not written the way the artist wrote them. Read morePublished on Nov. 10 2013 by Kris
Amazing book, tons of tunes to play - well 1200+.
However, I find that too many of the songs dates way 1950's and earlier. Read more
