The Real Book: Sixth Edition
$19.14
By Hal Leonard Corporation

This is the standard of jazz fake books. Bootleg copies of this collection of tunes were passed around for years as a "must have" for professional jazz musicians on "Real Book" gigs. I always felt guilty about the copyright infringement but at the time, one had no choice if you wanted to work. When Hal Leonard made it legitimate by contacting the composers and working out the permissions, "goody two shoes" jazzers like myself were relieved.
