    Song list is not accurate. About a dozen songs listed are not in the book (like Antico Canto Siciliano, Autumn in Rome, My Way, Que Sera Sera, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, etc.), but rather there are others, still bringing the total to 80. About one-fourth of the songs...

    are piano accompaniment only, melody line is extracted and appears above, have to work to incorporate it into the piano accompaniment.

    I needed a collection of Italian songs for a night of piano music for a fundraiser. Found this book, took a chance, and ordered it. The music was very playable, meaning most of it was easily learned in a few run-throughs..

    A very comprehensive collection of Italian standards, easy to navigate and perform from. It is probably the best of its type that I have seen and it was relatively inexpensive. I work quite a bit in Italian restaurants and find the book totally helpful and worthwhile.
