- Volume I, 6th Edition; and
- Volume II, 2nd Edition.
Over 400 tunes are included in each volume.
The Bb Real Book is the answer to the fake book. It is an alternative to the plethora of poorly designed, illegible, inaccurate, badly edited volumes which abound on the market today. The Bass Clef Real Book is extremely accurate, neat, and is designed, above all, for practical use. These new editions contain tunes that are re-arranged, re-transcribed and most importantly, licensed, so that you may study and play these works more accurately and legally.
Major jazz composers of the last 60 years are highlighted, with special attention given to the 1960s and 1970s. This includes many bop standards and a fine selection of Duke Ellington masterpieces. Also included are works by many of the jazz giants of the last 40 years - Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk.
