    Hey,

    Since I'm gettin' into this thing, what's a good fake book to get that pretty much encompasses everything?

    These are the books that Terell Stafford ( www.terellstafford.com ) and all the jazz faculty at Temple use with their students.

    Also, here is a good review of most all of the Fake Books, however it is designed for guitarists, etc.

    The 6th edition "real book" is now commercially available... the tunes hopefully have better changes and corrected melody notes but that book is what 90% of the "pros" who read tunes read out of. Nowadays I just learn all of my tunes by ear. It's so much better for you and you remember them much better (at least for me I do).

    Hal Leonard sells it now. I guess that puts the guys at Berklee out of business ;)

    Best,

    Trent
