Since long, there has been a need for a printed compilation of jazz standard tunes. Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia AB of Sweden is pleased to present such a book, covering an important part of this repertoire - tunes that are played on jam sessions all over the world. Many of these tunes have been difficult to find for people looking for printed music. Also the original music has not been adapted to jazz harmony. We are very proud to be able to present a volume with today's jazz harmonies and jazz interpretations throughout the book. Of course it will always be a matter of taste how to choose chord colour as individual freedom and expression will always be a vital part of jazz. Apart from this, this material to a great extent correspond with the interpretations of most jazz players today.
