If you're an entertainer/guitarist/keyboardist who wants to add real depth to your playing and repetoire, here's a powerful shortcut. Not only is it a great fake book with elegant chords, but it's also a mini course in chord substitution basics. This is pure gold. Frank Mantooth is a rare guy who can play and teach with equal expertise.

I am not crazy about all of the chord suggestions but it is good to have the option. I am crazy about the song choices in Frank Mantooths song books. I've purchased every one of his books because the songs are some of the best ever written and they are published on one or 2 pages and very easy to read.

This is an excellent quality fake book with excellent song selections, however I was not very impressed with the "professionally altered chords." These suggested chords consist of tritone subs, extra ii-V's, some altered chords, some suggested suspensions, some suggested bass notes, and some prolongations by typical harmonic movements. Suffice to say, nearly all the suggestions are intuitive to one who's played out of fake books before and understands progressions and jazz harmony. Still, I'm sure it's a nice study to anyone who wants to solidify their mastery of fake book playing. There are some harmonies suggested that are part of definitive recordings, and that is cool. I was used to Dick Hyman's suggested altered chords in his books and Mantooth's fake books are just a step below, with Hyman's being more creative, more challenging, and better thought out.

Here is the song list for this book:

If you can play chord symbols on the piano, these are the chords that you will enjoy listening to yourself play. They are the restructured chords that the top arrangers use when they write for Tony Bennett and Diana Krall.
Let your ear be the judge.......
