Singers! All of you should line up and kiss Chuck Sher's feet! For doing these genius fake books for us-I mean, a world without them is inconceivable.”
— Mark Murphy

The new Standards Real Book is really incredible! So many great songs, many of which one never sees printed. And like always in the books published by Sher Music Co., they are represented accurately.”
— Maria Schneider

Again you have done a beautiful job. I think the new book is terrific. I especially like the alternate chords.”
— Dave Frishberg

The Standards Real Book is a remarkable collection of great songs of the 20th Century. The editors deserve congratulations on this massive and entertaining volume of songs.”
— The Jazz Review

It's great to have the standards and more, done legally, clearly and accurately. More cheers to Sher Music taking care of necessary business for musicians.”
— Dave Liebman

Sher Music's Real Book series just keeps on getting better and better. The Standards Real Book is the closest thing in print to The Great American Song Book.”
— Mark Levine

The Standards Real Book is an incredible compilation. The accuracy, clarity and great taste of the Sher Music team have produced a volume of enormous importance. It is a new source for the far-ranging possibilities of this music that we love.”
— Richie Beirach

Finally a series of great fake books which are practically guaranteed for their accuracy and attention to detail. As an arranger and performer I refer to them all the time and wish they were available years ago.”
— Alan Broadbent
