This book was even more essential than the fakebooks of popular songs, since many of the tunes in it were not published in any other form. They had to be transcribed from recordings. Until recently, the most widely used book in jazz circles was The Real Book Fifth Edition, although there were also volumes 2 and 3 of additional songs in the same format.
Since then, they also produced volumes 2, 3, and 4 of additional songs, as well as specialty real books each devoted to a specific composer, such as Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, and Bud Powell. With so many choices, how is a newcomer to choose one for starting? Books will have different appeal depending on their intended use. Some possible uses are as follows: Playing on the bandstand: For this kind of use, it helps if the notes are large enough to be read from a distance, especially if one is playing standing up, as a horn player might well be.
If tunes are being requested or called at random, it is helpful if the tunes are organized alphabetically for quick access. A second alternative would be to have a readable index at hand that gives page numbers.
Singing: If you are planning to sing the tunes, having the words would obviously be good. A second consideration is verses, the lesser-known part of a standard tune before the chorus. While it is common not to sing the verse of a standard, I would say that verses are increasingly appreciated in the jazz community. All other things being equal, I would choose a fakebook that included verses, even though this does make the transcription less compact.
Self-study: In study collections of music, for example the "Great American Songbook", the emphasis could be on having a large assortment of tunes, rather than readability. In this case one might prefer a smaller note font, and more dense packing of staves. Learning about chord substitutions: In jazz it is common to replace some chords and progressions with ones that have a jazzier "hipper" sound. This is called chord substitution, and advanced players do it on the fly.
The extreme of this is re-harmonization, wherein few of the original chords are left intact.
Some fakebooks, notably ones by Frank Mantooth and Champ Champagne, provide examples of substitutions, along with the original chords. Such leadsheets can be invaluable for acquiring an understanding of how substitutions are done. Some fakebooks even provide an explanation of their rationale, so that the ideas can be applied to tunes not in the book.
Finding specific songs: Perhaps you would like a leadsheet for a song, but don't want the sheet music. In this case, downloading a book gives you that song plus other possibly-related songs for the cost of a few pieces of sheet music.
A good way to find which books have a specific song is to use the Seventh String Fake Book Index , which allows you to search from a title from any subset of a large set of books. There are other indexes available on the web, and I have made my own limited 16, entries spreadsheet index.
Not all fakebooks have the same degree of accuracy. Many contain mistakes, some more than others.
For example, when the Real Book Sixth Edition was introduced, it was said to have corrected all the mistakes in the Fifth Edition. However, some new ones were introduced. In my opinion, the Sher Music books are likely to be the most accurate. A slight down side is that, unlike the Hal Leonard books, many of the Sher books contain tunes with full arrangements that take up significant space, but which the average player would not stand a chance of playing without a great deal of practice.
In this regard, they are often more like books of arrangements rather than just fakebooks.
Chords-Only Fakebooks A chords-only fakebook for which I suggest the abbreviation cofakebook is just what it says: A book with just the chords, no melody. Quite obviously, such a book offers less guidance, than a regular fakebook. To play the melody, you are expected to know at least the sound of the melody from other sources, such as having heard it, and be able to construct it on the fly.
This is not as hard as it might seem at first. Being given the chord provides a strong hint for the possible melody notes. Playing using a cofakebook will thus improve your ear in ways that a regular fakebook cannot. Cofakebooks are generally more compact, because tunes don't take up as much real estate due to the absence of melody. There are only a few of these, most notably Pocket Changes 2 volumes and Grigson's book.
The formatting in this book would take some getting used to in order to read from it effectively. The Vanilla Book , from the late guitarist Ralph Patt, contains simplified changes for about jazz and standard tunes. While many people cite this book, and it does have an interesting cross index of chord progressions by tonal center, several of the progressions in the tunes are suspect, so it would be best used with caution.
Software There are software products that display leadsheets, and some of these come with their own cofakebooks, or allow you to download chords-only leadsheets from the web.
These include iReal b formerly iRealBook , which is a commercial app for the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, and MacOS; Impro-Visor , which is a free open-source app having an associated chords-only fakebook called The Imaginary Book available free to user group members; and Band-in-a-Box , a commercial app for play-along, for which many free leadsheets can also be found. All of these apps also play backing tracks based on the leadsheet.
Impro-Visor and Band-in-a-Box can play and display melody as well. SongTrelli s is another website offering chord changes to many tunes. Unfortunately, the playback sounds of many of those progressions seem to suffer from a lack of voice leading, as if all chords were played in root position, so it may be hard to get a good impression of the expected sound for a given tune from this site.
It is best to start with the lower-numbered volumes, such as the Sixth Edition of implied volume 1 and the first New Real Book. If you are a beginner at jazz, then consider starting with The Real Easy Book. Despite the title, it is not really dumbed down; the tunes are just a little simpler, at least for volume 1. Volume 2 introduces some tunes that are not so easy. Volume 3 includes a brief history of jazz threaded among the tunes.
The Real Easy series also includes performance information such as bass lines and chord voicings see below , which can be very helpful for the beginner.
For performance, you should avoid books with page turns and bindings that don't lay flat. Having the tunes arranged alphabetically is important, or at least have a quickly usable index. Includes preloaded real book jazz standards, pop and rock chord charts that you can transpose to any key.
