15 essential standards have been given new arrangements tailor-made for singers, with alternative jazz chord changes, complete verses, introductions and singer-flattering endings. This book is in a traditional jazz format designed for improvising accompaniments, with melody line, lyrics and chords in a handwritten music engraving style. Traditional chord changes are also included, along with the alternative chords in Steve Rawlins' creative arrangements. Keys in the Women's Edition are in a generally lower range, as is customary for this style of music. The Men's Edition keys are in a medium range. The CD features a professional jazz trio of piano, bass and drums.
