Jazz Standards Transcriptions/Chord changes/Backing tracks
I have always found that the internet, in all its glory, is not a very good source for finding accurate and free sheet music to Jazz standards. The best source is probably a good fake book, but not everyone has one available and I find it is always good to have computerized material anyway, in case you want to print/edit/transpose. So, I decided to start this page where I will try to make available as many transcriptions to standards as I can get my hands on and in different formats so that this will become, one day, a big reliable source for online Jazz sheet music.
Note: As I am having some trouble adding the melodies to some of these formats, files that do contain melodies will be indicated by an “m” in brackets. I will be paying more attention to the chord changes, though, since the melody is much easier to pick out by ear from a CD than the chords are. Also these files, lacking the melody lines, are excellent for use as backing tracks for studying/practicing.
