The New Real Book is the best-selling legal fake book of all time, with over 100,000 musicians depending on it for accurate, easy-to-read charts for hundreds of the most important tunes in the jazz canon. Don't go to the gig without it!
All living composers have approved these charts; many of them are from the composer's own lead sheets.
Charts for the standards were derived from a consensus of the best recorded jazz versions.
Created by musicians, for musicians. The new standard in fake books!
Available in C, Bb and Eb versions.
