Instant no-frills arrangements of over 190 great jazz standards. Each song consists of melody line, chord symbols and lyrics (where appropriate). That's all there is to it! Just open the book and start playing.
Cerainly one of the best collections of popular jazz numbers I have come across and a brilliant starting point for new comers to this genre of music. I bought it because there were a few numbers which are not found easily in other albums. Anonymous

I gave this book to my son for Christmas and he loves it! He is playing jazz in a band and is still learning the art of improvisation; the book has an awesome collection of tunes for him to master. Anonymous

A good, straightforward real/fake book. Lots of jazz standards in typical real book format. Metal spiral binding, so it lays flat for easy reading. Good quality paper (i.e. thick).
I've checked a number of the songs with my guitar teacher (who is a professional jazz guitarist) and he says they are "correct". No tab, but, if you are interested in playing jazz, you probably won't miss this.
