Charlie Mariano Fakebook

Here's a Charlie Mariano fakebook that was published by Berklee press back in 1960, when Charlie was teaching there. Charlie is of course of the great alto players of all time and a wonderful composer. There are some very nice tunes in here, one of those is a tune that I've been looking for for a while called Blue Walls (or Blue Balls as the cats in Boston used to call it). Herb Pomeroy turned me on to this tune and I recently heard it again when someone sent me some Jimmy Mosher bootlegs.
