Just Jazz Real Book: C Edition (Just Real Books Series) Reviews
If you want to have just one fake book, this is the one to get. I also have Just Standards from the same series. Both have a similar format, and there is a little bit of overlap in terms of the songs included in the two volumes.
This volume of jazz tunes was compiled with the musician in mind. I say that because the publishers focused on: a.) accuracy, b.) quality selection, and c.) ease of use. If you're looking for a real or fake book, look no further. This is where to invest wisely.
400 pages of sheet music with lyrics, melodies and suggested comping chords. It's very inspiring for a jazz player to try inversions of the chords and create your own arrangement. You can also use YouTube to get an idea of the rhythm and melody if you are not too keen on reading music. :-P
The other reviews published here are well earned. My one reservation: whoever arranged the harmonic turnarounds at the end of sections of most of these tunes or at the finish of a tune, used the simple VIm7-IIm7-V7-IMaj7 progression. It seems like the arranger merely "plugged in" these turnaround harmonies. Although these harmonies "work," I would have liked more variety in the harmonies at the turnaround points.
A very good collection and very readable notation.
I'm pleased with its format from beginning page to end page. The comprehensiveness of songs' presentation via the totality of arrangement, and the accompanying lyrics.
The fakebook contained many classic and more modern jazz pieces. The contents of the book were excellent, however, it would have been better if it had been spiral bound since the current binding is difficult to keep flat on the piano. I will definitely make more similar purchases in the future.
Useful book for a professional jazz musician.
