The Real Book Vol 2 (Second Edition) [Bb Instruments]



Our Description

taken from the Preface:

'The Bb Real Book is extremely accurate, neat, and is designed, above all, for practical use.  This edition offers the horn player the luxury of on-the-spot sight reading without having to transpose.  Every effort has been made to make it enjoyable to play.  Here are some of the primary features:


a, The book is professionally copied and meticulously checked for accuracy in melody, harmony and rhythms.

b, Form within each tune, including both phrases and larger sections, is clearly delineated and placed in obvious visual arrangement.

c, All two-page tunes open to face one another.

d, Most standard-type tunes remain true to their original harmonies with little or no reharmonization.  The exceptions include a handful of jazz interpretations of popular songs and Broadway showtunes, as well as some modifications using modern notation and variation among turnarounds.

Selection of Tunes and Editing

a, Major jazz composers of the last 60 years are highlighted, with special attention given to the 1960's and 1970's.



Second Edition

This new edition contains tunes that are re-arranged, re-transcribed and most importantly, licensed, so that you may study and play these works more accurately and legally.  Enjoy!'
