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. Songs include: Afro Blue • Afternoon in Paris • Água De Beber (Water to Drink) • Alfie • All the Things You Are • Anthropology • Au Privave • Autumn in New York • Autumn Leaves • Body and Soul • But Beautiful • Call Me Irresponsible • Confirmation • Darn That Dream • Desafinado • Don't Get Around Much Anymore • Donna Lee • Epistrophy • Falling in Love with Love • (I Love You) for Sentimental Reasons • Giant Steps • The Girl from Ipanema (Garota De Ipanema) • God Bless' the Child • How Insensitive (Insensatez) • I'll Never Smile Again • In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning • Lady Sings the Blues • Like Someone in Love • Maiden Voyage • Nostalgia in Times Square • Ornithology • Prelude to a Kiss • Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars (Corcovado) • Satin Doll • Stella by Starlight • Take Five • Take the “A” Train • Waltz for Debby • When I Fall in Love • Yesterdays • and more.
