Must-know Jazz Standards by Key

. . . with hyper-links to the music


Below is a list of commonly-played jazz standards, organised by key.

The list is taken from Peter Spitzer's lists.

The keys are taken from the Great Gig Book, arguably the handiest Fake Book in existence as it contains a great selection with chords, melody and lyrics.

I am in the process of hyper-linking each standard to the music in the Great Gig Book.

Keys given are concert.
