Jazz Ballads for Singers - Women's Edition (15 Classic Standards in Custom Vocal Arrangements Women's Edition). Arranged by Steve Rawlins. For Vocal. Vocal Collection. Play Along. Softcover with CD. 40 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.740258).
ISBN 0634064568. Play Along. 9x12 inches.
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.
Women's Edition includes: Autumn in New York • Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans • Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye • I Could Write a Book • I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good • It Might as Well Be Spring • Just One More Chance • Lush Life • Manhattan • My Romance • Nature Boy • The Nearness of You • A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square • Solitude • Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most.

Excellent for true female jazz voices
I'm not sure why all the complaints about the low registers - most of the great female jazz voices were altos. I thought this was great for my range - these aren't really the kinds of songs that sopranos should tackle anyway

Although this was advertised "For Women's Voices" ALL the songs were too low for my voice... 2nd soprano. It strained my voice and hurt my throat when I attempted to sing along. Will never use this book.

Trio performance good
Charts are pitched pretty low but good keys for most jazz singers. Arrangements are not overdone. Trio backup is nice for giving my vocal students a taste of "sitting in." Very useful for adult students who want something more sophisticated than kareoke.
