    Finally!

    It's about time someone realized that the original Real Book was pretty much the definitive source for many jazz players (both in their infancy and in professional situations). The song list, like the publishers say, is nearly identical. Nearly all of the same standards and tunes that made the original Real Book what it was make this new edition the perfect book. I hope that Volumes 2 and 3 get the same treatment, and I'm waiting for the B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef versions. Here's hoping they do a vocal version too!
