hey, im hoping to get a jazz real book soon, so i can practise my jazz bass playing, but im not sure which real book to get. i hear different opinions on which is THE real book, with the most famous tunes, and i wondered if anyone would recommend one and say why they choose it?

many thanks

well, if you play a Bb instrument, get the Bb one. i think the 6th edition is the latest edition.

It depends on what the people you're playing with are reading from. For the old illegal books, just google "realbk1.pdf", but you may have some trainwrecks when playing with people reading from the new Hal Leonard versions. You can get the legal versions from amazon for about 10 quid these days if you're looking to buy one...
