The Just Standards Real Book contains 250 classic songs, from show tunes to jazz standards, that are the core required repertoire for musicians all over the world. Production teams in both the U.S. and U.K. took great care to ensure the accuracy and usability of each arrangement and original composer sources were consulted to ensure that the arrangements remained true to the composers' intention. Plus, useful and important chord substitutions are indicated for each arrangement, allowing the user to pick from the original chords or the more popular jazz versions. This book is extensively cross-referenced with appendices including: a complete composer index, a complete discography of suggested recorded versions for each song, a section on how to play from a fakebook, chord theory reference pages, and a section on how to create interesting chord substitutions. Comb bound, approx. 400 pages.
