The Big Book Of Torch Songs is a stunning collection of powerful songs full of passion, love, longing and regret that combine to capture the sultry candlelit essence of Torch Songs in one lovelorn compendium.

The name Torch Songs perfectly describes these slow-burning ballads and blues tunes, the ones that depict the singer yearning over an unrequited love, or perhaps lamenting their invisibility in the object of their affections' eyes. Featuring many notable songs made famous by some of the greatest female icons of yesteryear, including Nina Simone, Billy Holiday and Marlene Dietrich, this book is a wonderful compendium of truly timeless love songs. 

This collection of over sixty Torch Songs includes Black Coffee, Falling In Love Again (Can't Help It), Lover Man (Oh Where Can You Be), I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues and The Thrill Is Gone. You could use these songs to enhance your repertoire since, these are not like the love songs of today, they are examples of the genuinely brilliant songwriting that graced the earth about halfway through the 20th century. 

The Big Book Of Torch Songs is absolutely perfect if you're looking to learn classic love songs. Arranged for Piano, Vocal and Guitar, you'll be following in the footsteps of the likes of Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy McHugh and Jule Styne.
