"The Al Book"

Newly added to this site are two collections (in the form of two books) of tunes mostly transcribed and annotated in the early ’90’s. Altogether there are about 200 tunes.

Some of the more common songs are specific to the arrangements from the original recordings while some are my own arrangements but, mostly, they are facsimile transcriptions (fake book type scores). Whatever the case, at the time they were transcribed only a few of the tunes were in print and, to this day, there are a number of tunes I’ve yet to see published. 

Because this is a personal collection of tunes intended for rehearsal / jam band situations, information regarding composers, recordings, etc. has not been included. As always, if you do have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

For The Curious: the mechanics involved paper, pencil and a variable speed Marantz cassette tape deck. The transcriptions written in Finale were copied from less legible hand written scores.
