Jimmy Buffett: Sheet Music Anthology Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, April 08, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, releases Jimmy Buffett: Sheet Music Anthology, a collection of Buffett’s greatest hits arranged for piano and voice, including chords for guitar.

Jimmy Buffett: Sheet Music Anthology contains 25 “Parrothead” classics, including “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Come Monday,” “Margaritaville,” “Off to See the Lizard,” “Why Don’t We Get Drunk,” and many more. Each of the songs is presented in a simple, easy-to-play piano and vocal setting including guitar chord grids and lyrics.

Known for his time-honored song “Margaritaville,” Jimmy Buffet—along with his Coral Reefer Band—are proponents of the easy-going, “island escapism” lifestyle. Buffett’s style of music is coined “gulf and western,” which refers to the elements of his early musical influence: country and folk music, and the music styles and themes from Mexico’s Gulf Coast region.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.

The Jimmy Buffett: Sheet Music Anthology (00-37261) is now available for $19.99 at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
