We have in Alaska, unbeknownst to many, a host of talented, national class, if not world-class composers and musicians. In allowing AK REAL BOOK to publish these works, they are contributing to the effort of introducing new generations to jazz and making players aware of the wealth of material at their disposal composed by their Alaskan peers.
Accessibility is key. So is community. Community happens when players and listeners come together in a music-making context that either affirms the known and shared, or refreshes through new and surprising sounds. We hope this book will be used frequently, at jams, concerts, and in practice/teaching studios.

Thank you for your incredible support, not just of Spenard Jazz Fest & the Alaska Real Book, but of the musicians who have collaborated on it, and the countless people who will learn & play from it.
Good news! Since you already have a Gumroad account, it's also been added to your library.
