Writings about Music

The Six

Victor Young, among the godlike composers of jazz standards

The Six Real Books encompass many if not all of the jazz standards, a body of music and lyrics unsurpassed in world history. They are the timeless ragas of jazz for infinite improvisational exploration. (Better if the books actually had the lyrics, too!)
