Swingin' in Atlanta

A couple of helpful links for jazz musicians…

http://www.jazzbiographies.com/
www.jazzstandards.com
–  These 2 websites have great information on the most popular jazz standards, and musicians.  You can find musical analysis, as well as a list of definitive recordings to check out.
www.ralphpatt.com
    – Ralph’s website has a handy reference of standards with a simple framework of
chord changes – no melodies.
http://earplane.com/modules/earplane_main/
      -I think this is one of the better free online ear training websites.  Of course, not just for jazz musicians!  It also has some drills that I haven’t seen anywhere else.
On one of them, a chord will play, and then a note.  You have to guess which scale tone – or non scale tone it is.  Good stuff!

Does anyone else have some cool and useful links that they’d like to contribute?

Peace, Dave
