    Can some one point me to a site that has sound files for the melodies to jazz standards? It doesn't have to be fancy, just a midi file, just so I can hear what they sound like. Thanks, Ward

    Hey, I did a little scouting around and found this:

    Click on "midi files" on the left-hand menu and you'll get a whole page of jazz standards. I only listened to a few; the quality seems to range from okay to nearly unlistenable, but at least you can hear the melodies. Hope it helps, CS :)

    why not buy miles davis "kind of blue" and listen to some of the best jazz ever made, and hear him play the melodies? i always find learning tunes i like, rather than "memorizing tunes" to be a ton more fun and productive
