For hardcore Jazzers and part-time jazz musicians, The New Real Book is a magnificent and meticulous fake-book collection of Jazz standards, Choice Standards and Pop-Fusion hits! This is an all-purpose book for jazz gigs, weddings, concerts and jam sessions and with over 200 songs inside there’s sure to be the very thing for the situation! Every one of these tunes is a true gem and include terrific compositions by Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Jaco Pastorius, Jimmy Van Heusen and Thelonius Monk, to name but a few!
This is the C and Vocal version that includes the music and lyrics and, like all Sher Music fake books, it features composer-approved transcriptions, easy-to-read calligraphy, and many extras (such as sample bass lines, chord voicings and drum appendix) not found in conventional fake books.
Created by musicians, for musicians! Easy to work with and extremely worthwhile to have, this volume is the new standard in fake books!

This volume gets good marks for the clarity of its notation and the authenticity of the transcriptions. There is a surprising variety in the contents and the levels of detail provided - some are simple one-pagers and others have multiple complex parts for solo, keyboard and bass. I'd suggest checking the contents before deciding this is right for you, but if you are serious you could learn a lot from this book. Anonymous
