Inspired by the original underground Real Book(s) of the 1970s, Spenard Jazz Fest, alongside countless musicians from around Alaska have come together to release the FIRST-EVER Alaska Jazz Real Book. 

Unbeknownst to many, Alaska is home to an incredible host of talented national, if not world-class composers & musicians. 

You can now learn to play their work!
Accessibility is key. So is community. Become a part of what comes next.
