Take 10: We’re Celebrating Jazz Appreciation Month With a New Jazz Sheet Music Value

Did you know that April is Smithsonian’s Jazz Appreciation Month? Jazz often is called America’s classical music. Whether swing, bop, ragtime, scat,  soul or funk, the genre’s imprint is evident in nearly every modern musical form.

One of the most important aspects to playing and performing jazz music is improvisation, or spontaneously creating a melody over a set harmony. As Duke Ellington famously said, “You’ve got to find some way of saying it without saying it.” Listening to and learning to play jazz standards is fundamental for anyone looking to hone his or her jazz improv skills.

To celebrate the art of jazz, and help you learn to play, we’ve put together a collection of some of the greatest, most influential standards. For just $19.95 you’ll receive 10 jazz sheet music essentials every musician should have in his or her repertoire, that’s less than $2 per song!

Included in our “10 Essential Jazz Standards” collection are these masterworks spanning jazz history:

  • It Had to Be You (1924)
  • Stardust (1928)
  • Ain’t Misbehavin’ (1929)

  1. I want to see a copy of the music before I buy. I play the harp, and have NO IDEA what these arrangements are like! Please put on your site, or on an email, one page of each one. I have spent many a dollar on musicnotes, and you have become more and more expensive! I need to SEE them.
