Charles Mingus:

More than a Fake Book

Published by Jazz Workshop, Inc., the Fake Book offers 55 compositions,

original scores, Mingus commentary, photographs, and musical analyses by Andrew Homzy.
Available through your local bookseller (ISBN 0-7935-0900-9), through Amazon.com or Sheetmusicplus.com, or by calling Hal Leonard at

800-321-3408.
“Everything about this book is first class — conception, execution, format and, above all, content. The transcriptions are impeccable, the annotations informative and insightful, the interviews revealing, and the photos exquisite. Throughout the book Mingus’ voice and indomitable spirit are pervasive. No musician who cares about American music in general and jazz music in particular can afford the luxury of being without this book, and for the jazz educator it is an absolute must!”
David Baker, Educator, University of Indiana 

“Even musicians and fans who don’t read music will find it fascinating.”
Elvis Costello

“Pure Mingus! A must-read!”
Sonny Rollins

“This work is of the greatest importance and unique in the field of jazz. It will be the starting point and the standard reference for any study of the Mingus heritage.”
Stephano Zenni
