Like earlier Real Easy Books from Sher Music, Vol.3 contains easy, but classic jazz tunes on one page and all the information a band director would normally write out for their students on the adjacent page.
Vol.3 is unique because it contains 5-10 tunes from each historical era of jazz – from Dixieland up through Afro-Cuban Jazz – thus giving the student a great introduction to the wide world of jazz. In addition, each section has an entertaining, yet informative, history text introducing the era, including the musical innovations that style of jazz brought to the music. The end result is a multi-dimensional teaching tool for school jazz combos, as well as just a great jazz fake book.
