Jazz guitarist & composer

After playing these songs by ear, the Real Book tells me how close I was.

-Ron Carter
Jazz bassist & composer

For many years, the Real Book has provided an increasingly accurate representation of the standard jazz repertoire, along with more obscure and hard to find pieces written by jazz musicians. I’ve owned a few of these volumes since my early days in music school, and I continue to use them as excellent reference books for my students. The Real Book collection is an invaluable tool for any established or aspiring professional, and serves as a great introduction to the standards for the amateur or hobbyist musician.

Jazz pianist & educator

As one of the many musicians who has used the Real Books for most of my career, it’s great to have corrected and legal versions available at a great price!
