About Hal Leonard Fake Books
A "fake book" contains songs written in a concise format that includes only the melody and chords, letting you interpret the song's performance as you feel is appropriate. This is great for quickly learning songs by yourself or with an ensemble.
Each song in a fake book only has a single melody actually written out in notes, which is usually the vocal or lead melody. This melody will have the lyrics written beneath the notes, with each word aligned to its corresponding note. Above the notes of the melody will appear the names of the appropriate chords to play - for example, a "C minor" chord would be written as "Cmin" or Cm", rather than writing out all of the notes in those chords as they appeared in the original version of the song.
This format is very compact, which is why you will often see fakebooks containing 500 or more songs.

Songs of the Greatest Generation
I just received this book as a gift, and I REALLY like it! I remember my parents humming many of these songs when I was a young child, but I didn't know the titles or words, so I couldn't get the music. It is wonderful to have so much great...

With 625 tunes, the Ultimate Jazz Fake Book is the largest collection of Jazz classics put together in any publication. The chord voicings are intelligent and the arrangements complete. This book is a must for the serious musician.
