Tom Wood wrote about the fake book they use. There is a CD Rom out with
the contents of 12 fake books on it. I am just going through them now
but there appears to be about 5000 tunes. Most, however, are not
Dixieland but mainstream jazz, bop, latin and the tin pan alley tunes
and all the musical show tunes over the past 70 years of so. Invaluable
to doing more "commercial" work.

Includes all of the "Real Books", "Real Jazz Books' and The Bill Evans
book etc.
