Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

We mentioned this on the site two years ago, and the overwhelming popularity of eReaders such as the iPad make this resource even more appealing. Need a jazz chart PDF for a gig or practice? Want to have it immediately transposed for your library? is your answer.

Of course an app like iReal B will do a good share of this for you, but if you want to print paper or just another interpretation, there are over 1,000 songs contributed by working musicians at your fingertips, including search options for already published printed materials. Understand that this is not a fakebook with melody notated, to offer this feature would make the project cost prohibitive, with all the due legal responsibilities and royalty administration. Still, considering the cost (free), this is an excellent "go to" for songs you may not already have in your repertoire.

You can use this to print your own set of songs!
