The Real Books are the best-selling jazz books of all time. Since the 1970s, musicians have trusted these volumes to get them through every gig, night after night. The problem is that the books were produced and distributed, without any regard to copyright law or royalties paid to the composers who created these musical masterpieces.
Hal Leonard is very proud to present the first legitimate and legal editions of The Real Books ever produced. You won't even notice the difference, other than that all of the notorious errors have been fixed. The covers and typeface look the same. The song list is nearly identical. And the price for this edition is even less than the original! Every conscientious musician will appreciate that these books are now produced accurately and ethically, benefitting the songwriters that we owe for some of the greatest tunes of all time!

This is a great book and essential for any jazz player. You wont find many pros show up and pull out a fake book and read that as they play. Includes rhythm chords and melody. Add your own solos and you have all you need for a two guitar duet. They only reason that it got 4 instead of 5 (i would give it 4 and a half if i could) is because there are some essential songs that they left out like bags groove and watermelon man.
