I am looking for a decent early jazz fake book?
« on: January 05, 2013, 12:58:19 AM »
I know this is a blues forum but I was thinking that someone here might be able to point me in the right direction.  I am looking for a decent early jazz fake book.  Does anybody have any suggestions?
Thanks much!
-Ryan

Try "The Standards Real Book".

(If you do a google search, you should find an online pdf version too).

By the way, a good tool for finding a particular song is the fake book index:

It's best to be a little wary of fake books as far as chords go, especially when it comes to older stuff. That being said, I would strongly agree with Pan's suggestion of The Standards Real Book, or anything else published by Sher Music; their charts are all incredibly accurate. I would strongly advise against using "The Real Book" (not to be confused with "The New Real Book" Sher) or any other charts published by Hal Leonard as everything they put out is riddled with errors.

Another great one is the Firehouse band Fake book, or something along those lines.  it's not printed anymore but you can dig it up online...also the Golden standards fake book which is more Tin Pan alley songs than old school jazz, but still some real gems in there.

I've got two or three Trad Jazz Fake Books, with some duplicates but mostly diferent tunes on each. I could send em to you by mail or upload to a server and publish here the addresses if you like.

FWIW, I just found out that the old Berklee Real Book is now online with charts in C, Bb, Eb, and bass clef, and with sound clips.
