A unique collection of jazz arrangements by the great Chuck Israels, who has spent many years honing his jazz arranging skills, besides being a legendary bassist with Bill Evans, Stan Getz, George Russell, etc.
The song list includes Jazz-oriented lead sheets for Tin Pan Alley songs, like “The Man I Love,” “You Made Me Love You,” “Always,” “Bye Bye Blackbird” and many more.

Traditional Americana tunes are given new life with Chuck Israels’ hip, jazz sensibility — like “Shenandoah,” “Wayfaring Stranger,” and “Careless Love.” Tunes that you and your audiences will recognize but have never been given jazz interpretations before, some with more elaborate, three-voice arrangements, good for more concert-like situations.
