Jazz Standard songs

These drumless tracks will help you improve your drum fills, time, feel and comping in a variety of musical styles commonly played in Jazz music.  In this second volume of arranged Jazz Standard songs, pianist Dr. Phillip Strange and bassist Tetsuro Aratama continue their masterful playing to support your drumming. 

Phillip Strange, arranged many of these Jazz Standard songs.  We used the chords of famous songs but changed the melodies.  That's why I call these "Almost" Jazz Standards.  You get the feeling of the original song but with a special twist uniquely created for this series.
