I browsed this item rather quickly (out of curiosity only), and I clicked on one of the images provided, which was a sample of the tunes in the book. The tune was "All of Me" in the key of D. However, all the other fake books such as "The Real Book" will have this tune in C. I suspect that the editors of this "101 Jazz Songs" book have tried to "make it easier" on violinist by changing many of the tunes to more violin-friendly keys, but if you decide to join a jam session then it will be harder to participate using this book. You don't have to be Heifetz to play "All of Me" in C major on the violin! And really, you need to learn to play in different keys. If you want to learn to play jazz, I suggest that you instead buy a regular fake book such as "The Real Book Volume 1" and start with the tunes that are *already* in violin-friendly keys and branch out from there. You will build better skills this way. Many jazz tunes were written to be horn-friendly, so they're often in "flat" keys like Bb, Eb, C-minor, etc.
