Chuck Israels


All instruments




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, but 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. For example, please listen to "School Days," "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair," "What'll I Do," etc. in the sample songs below.

A half-dozen songs with more elaborate, three-voice arrangements, good for more concert-like situations. 130 pages, only $24 for the physical book and $14 for the digital version!
