Creole Jazz Band Fake Book 2023 Version
Here is a great collection of tunes available for free. Below is my good friend Kevin Yeates Description of his fantastic fake book.
We are pleased to advise that 2023 version of The Creole Jazz Band fake book contains even more tunes. We have also included tunes up to and including 1926 that are out of copyright as of this year. Many bands are using tablets for their music so it seems only natural that the fake book should be adapted to maximize the benefits of working on a computer. We have taken a baby step towards incorporating all of the benefits of an electronic book by setting up bookmarks for all of the tunes. Once you find the tune you want in the bookmarks, all you need do is to tap, or click, on the tune name, and the book will immediately jump to that tune. These Fake Books are offered at no charge. Please enjoy them and share them as you see fit. Rather than selling these and having someone pay us, we are asking that instead you "pay it forward". For those of you who don't know the concept of paying it forward, here is a quote from the movie of the same name which explains the concept. "You see, I do something real good for three people. And then when they ask how much they can pay it back, I say they have to Pay It Forward to three more people. So nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seven". We are always looking for ideas from the users of the book for improvements in the book, tunes you want to see included, and any other enhancements you are looking for. We cannot guarantee that we will adopt every idea, but please be sure to let us know anyway. Please let us know of any errors in these fake books so we can fix them. We have changed the numbering system for the edition of the fake book this year. We are simply going with the year of publication. The 2021 edition was put out in 2021. This 2023 edition is put out in 2023. We hope this will make it easier for everyone to keep up-to-date with the latest edition. On behalf of the lads in the band, we hope you enjoy the book.
