The Days of Wine and Roses
Billie's Bounce

somewhere on this site is a pdf of tunes to learn for a jam session. and i can't find it. i'll keep looking.

just remember the real book 1 was the only real book anyone use for years. a lot of the standards in that book are the ones we all play on jam sessions. not the zappa tunes and carla bley tunes. they're great but they're not jam session tunes!

i have to find this list. maybe someone has it. i know someone also boiled the list down to the top 50

It's you who remembered it existed. I only wrote the key words in the search engine! ;-)
