Includes easy, but classic, jazz tunes on one page, and all the things a band director might have to write out for their students on each facing page. Vol. 3 is unique, however, because the tune selection includes 5-10 songs from each historical era of jazz--from Dixieland to Swing to Bebop to Afro-Cuban Jazz, and more. In addition, Vol.3 has an entertaining and informative history text introducing each section, including the musical innovations that happened in each era. All in all, a perfect teaching tool for any jazz educator, as well as just a great fake book!
