Volume 1 of The Real Easy Book has proven to be one of the most popular publications from Sher Music Company. With its collection of relatively simple, but very important jazz compositions with accompanying educational material (useful scales, sample piano and guitar voicings and bass lines), it has become one of the most valued resources for teachers of beginning jazz musicians.
This new edition of The Real Easy Book contains:
- three-horn arrangements of each tune;
- separate pages for each horn player;
- parts simple enough for beginning players, but which create fuller, much more interesting performances.
The new parts are written in a limited range to be playable by a variety of instruments. Each tune now includes harmony parts for the melody, background parts behind soloists, ensemble ‘shout choruses,’ etc.
This book contains 172 pages of fun and rewarding arrangements by pianist/arranger/author Larry Dunlap.
