    Difficulty Level:
  • July 01, 2007 The Rocket Science of Jazz

    It has the most complete and complex chords of any fake book I've seen (13ths & #11ths, etc.)& very clearly written, but it is for the jazz musician who is very knowledgeable about tunes that are, for the average guy, very obscure. Nevertheless, it has many songs that I could...

    play somewhat and a great appendix for latin rythmns. It has songs by the likes of Tito Puentes, Chick Corea, Ray Barretto as well as Batacoto and Gonzaguinha, whoever they are. I really wanted the Latin FAKE Book that has more popular songs, but I goofed in ordering. The Latin Real Book is Definitely NOT for beginners.
