ENDORSEMENTS "Singers! All of you should line up and kiss Chuck Sher's feet! For doing these genius fake books for us-I mean, a world without them is inconceivable." Mark Murphy "The new Standards Real Book is really incredible! So many great songs, many of which one never sees printed. And like always in the books published by Sher Music Co., they are represented accurately." Maria Schneider "Again you have done a beautiful job. I think the new book is terrific. I especially like the alternate chords." Dave Frishberg "The Standards Real Book is a remarkable collection of great songs of the 20th Century. The editors deserve congratulations on this massive and entertaining volume of songs." The Jazz Review "It's great to have the standards and more, done legally, clearly and accurately. More cheers to Sher Music taking care of necessary business for musicians." Dave Liebman "Sher Music's Real Book series just keeps on getting better and better. The Standards Real Book is the closest thing in print to The Great American Song Book." Mark Levine "The Standards Real Book is an incredible compilation. The accuracy, clarity and great taste of the Sher Music team have produced a volume of enormous importance. It is a new source for the far-ranging possibilities of this music that we love." Richie Beirach.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 25, 2011 And "verses" too!

    One of the mayor aspects of this "Standards Real Book" of Sher Music is that a big number of well known melodies (the so called "refrains") are preceded by their "verse" . This sometimes really important intoductional part of a composition is mostly rather unknown even to experienced musicians (and singers...

    !). Also I am well pleased by the chords above the melodies; they are up to the actual standards of playing them. I hope Sher Music wil bring out a sequel to this book full of Standards. It is not difficult to find another 250 beautiful melodies in the "Great American Songbook" which also deserve a very clear "Sher notation" as we are - in the meantime - accustomed to!
