THE REHARMONIZED REAL BOOK – VOLUME 1: C INSTRUMENTS
Arranged by Jack Grassel
Series: Real Book Series
Arranger: Jack Grassel
Since the early 1970s, Real Books have provided jazz classics and standards for small jazz groups around the world. To help modern musicians approach some of these jazz standards with a fresh perspective, Hal Leonard is proud to present The Reharmonized Real Book. By re-tooling songs featured in the original Real Book, the Reharmonized Real Book shows new options on how melodies can be harmonized. Starting with a blank Real Book with only the melodies included, editor Jack Grassel reharmonized 393 songs, giving some songs fewer changes, some more changes, some different alterations, and some songs a more modern sound. Rather than replace the original Real Book, The Reharmonized Real Book will work in tandem with it and improve performances for jazz musicians around the world.
