15 Classic Standards in Custom Vocal Arrangements Women's Edition. Arranged by Steve Rawlins. Vocal Collection. Play Along. Softcover with CD. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.740258).

Item Number: HL.740258

ISBN 0634064568. 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.

    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

  • 2007-06-20 00:00:00.0 Disappointed

    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.

  • 2007-05-11 00:00:00.0 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.

    I purchased this book for my wife and she found it very comfortable to sing.
