Welcome to the chart library.

Steve Lawson and Gonzo can get you thinking out of the box right here.

Welcome to the chart library.

Postby nolabass » Fri Jan 27, 2006 11:38 am

This forum will be used to post and discuss charts. I have a hard time finding and sorting through good ones. Please recommend good sites, free sites and cool charts. The goal being building a reference base.
Duets, solos and the like would be way cool.
The truth is charts are a new piece of my puzzle and I need Y'alls help getting around. Thanks~peter

I have a large collection of realbooks on disk. It's so large, it takes a DVD to hold them all. If anyone wants a copy, email me at bayoucables@cox.net

I have a bunch of stuff too but probably need a scanner or something. This could be among the most helpful forums IMHO. I play in lots of different musical settings and am always in need of a chart for this or that.

Ya, my thing is it's all new to me. I would like to see Y'alls favorites. The real/fake books are a little overwhelming as they are so vast.

Pete they are vast but nobody plays all those tunes bro. I play standards on gigs weekly and usually they are the same tunes but I am working with a new piano player who is pushing me lately. I think he is calling up every obscure tune in the Real Book just to make me sweat a little. As long as he pays, I'll sweat all over him....that doesn't sound right does it.....

I've been called a "Musical Prostitute" for having just this same mentality, but I prefer the term "Musical Gigolo".

Here's a link to a site with over 500 tunes most of which are Jazz Standards that can be transposed to any key with playback.

I have a collection like the one mentioned above. It takes three dvd's to hold them all. I sometimes just bring my laptop for gigs. I have a sturdy music stand to put it on and it's easy to flip through tunes that are pdfs. The best thing about it is when I feel like I'm stuck on a tune or just bored with something I can flip through and look for something neat, maybe even play through the head, before ever hearing the tune. Then limewire it and get to hear how different (or similar) the original is. McCoy Tyner's "passion dance" is one of those. Now it's a personal standard I call up ever chance I get and everybody loves playing it.
Only sick music makes money today.
