Jazz Ballads for Singers - Men's Edition
15 essential standards have been given new arrangements tailor-made for singers, with alternative jazz chord changes, complete verses, introductions and singer-flattering endings. This book is in a traditional jazz format designed for improvising accompaniments, with melody line, lyrics and chords in a handwritten music engraving style. Traditional chord changes are also included, along with the alternative chords in Steve Rawlins' creative arrangements. Keys in the Women's Edition are in a generally lower range, as is customary for this style of music. The Men's Edition keys are in a medium range. The CD features a professional jazz trio of piano, bass and drums. Men's Edition includes: Autumn in New York á Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans á Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye á I Could Write a Book á I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good á It Might as Well Be Spring á Just One More Chance á Lush Life á Manhattan á My Funny Valentine á My Romance á The Nearness of You á A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square á Solitude á Stardust.
