The Real Books are the best-selling jazz books of all time. Since the 1970s, musicians have trusted these volumes to get them through every gig, night after night. The problem is that the books were illegally produced and distributed without any copyrights or royalties paid to the master composers who created these musical canons. Hal Leonard is very proud to present the first legitimate and legal editions of these books ever produced. You won't even notice the difference...the covers look the same, the engravings look the same, the songlist is nearly identical, and the price remains fair even on a musician's salary! But every conscientious musician will appreciate that these books are now produced legally and ethically, benefitting the songwriters that we owe for some of the greatest music ever written! 400 songs, including: Ain't Misbehavin' * All or Nothing at All * Along Came Betty * Cheek to Cheek * East of the Sun (And West of the Moon) * Funkallero * H & H * I've Got the World on a String * I've Got You Under My Skin * The Jive Samba * The Lady Is a Tramp * Milestones * Moonlight in Vermont * A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square * On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever) * Samba De Orfeu * Stormy Weather (Keeps Rainin' All the Time) * Things Ain't What They Used to Be * The Very Thought of You * Violets for Your Furs * Watermelon Man * and more.

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.

    While we use volumes 1 and 2 this volume 3 contains the most useful tunes. My sideman on guitar finds them very easy to use.

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 05, 2008 Where are the words

    There are no lyrics to any of the songs in this compilation of music. I really feel ripped off. Also the music looks handwritten and not at all pleasing to look or professional looking and wastes too much copy space. Even the arrangements are poorly done....The Hal Leonard series...

    of books are way better...."The Real Books" are just a waste of money.

  • February 28, 2008 great collection of songs

    I would really recommend this book, it contains a great and fresh collection of jazz tunes, in true "Real Book" tradition. For any serious jazz player, teacher or student, this is an invaluable item.
