About 10 years ago, I went through about 20 real books on my shelf and chose the best tunes from every book. I copied them and created 2 real books. One was from A-I and the other was J-Z. I would bring these to my own gigs and it was so much more fun and exciting for myself and the other players. I would call tunes and we would sightread them. A lot of the players learned a bunch of tunes they had never played before. It was so much hipper than playing out of the "Real Book" and playing the same 20 tunes every gig.

Anyways, I'm getting ready to do this again and update these books of mine. I need to get rid of some tunes that I don't like now and add some new tunes I've discovered. I thought it would be fun if SOTW got involved in doing this. I think as a collective we have knowledge of some pretty hip tunes out there.

So here's my idea. I'm going to post a table of contents below and only add 2 tunes a day. Anyone can add 2 tunes a day. I ask that we keep it to tunes that are your favorites. Not so much tunes that you need in a book for wedding gigs........like the "Chicken Dance". More straight ahead stuff. Things that you would call if it was your swingin' jazz gig and you were the leader.

The reason I say only two a day is because I think it would be more fun if we all contribute. It would be lame if someone just adds 300 tunes in one post. Also, please add tunes that lead sheets exist of. If it's an obscure tune post what book it can be found in.

I'm not sure if this will work but let's give it a try. I'm looking forward to discovering some new tunes.

Remember, only post 2 tunes a day!!!

Copy the list below and add to it in your post.

I rarely make it through a gig without calling Deep In A Dream of I Thought About You, two of Jimmy Van Heusen's best.

Pure Imagination added for Eric. I love that tune. One of my favorites. You ever hear the Mark Turner version?
