Jazz Standards Lead Sheets

6 discussions • 171 scores • 1.1K members

This is a group for creating MuseScore lead sheets of jazz standards. If you have created a lead sheet of a jazz standard, leave a comment with a link to your score in the List of available jazz standards discussion thread to you have your score included in the collection.

If you don't know what a lead sheet is, see the definition below under "What is a Lead Sheet?". Likewise, if you don't know what a jazz standard is, see the definition below under "What Is a Jazz Standard?".

Feel free to report mistakes in any of the scores featured in this group.

What is NOT Included in This Group's Collection

For scores that are not lead sheets of jazz standards (e.g., solo guitar arrangements, transcribed instrumental solos, original jazz compositions, educational or music theory scores, etc.), see below for recommended MuseScore groups that might be the right place for your score. If you don't find a group that matches your score, you can create a group yourself.

What Is a Lead Sheet?

Most musicians would define a lead sheet as follows: a simple music score showing only the originally composed melody line of a song / composition, and chord symbols representing the chord changes of a song / composition. In the case of popular songs played in the jazz community, a lead sheet often includes the words to the song. If you've ever used a fakebook like 'The Real Book' or 'The Ultimate Jazz Fake Book', you've seen a lead sheet.

Some lead sheets may include introductory instrumental sections. For popular songs, introductory verses are sometimes included. Occasionally, a lead sheet includes a suggested bass line or a suggested chord voicing, when they are an integral part of the song or composition. For example, the lead sheets for Miles Davis' "All Blues" and "So What" in the Real Book vol. 1 feature bass lines and/or piano chord voicings considered essential to playing the composed sections of those tunes (assuming that you want to reproduce the general arrangement and feel of the original recording).

Lead sheets are primarily intended to help musicians play a song in live performance, or to learn the melody and chords of a song during a practice section.

The following are usually NOT considered lead sheets:
* A full arrangement with multiple instrumental parts
* A piano (or guitar, etc.) score with chord voicings throughout the score
* A transcription of a recorded performance including instrumental solos

What Is a Jazz Standard?

Generally speaking, jazz standards are either popular songs written between about 1910 and 1960 that have been performed by jazz musicians and singers over many years, OR instrumental tunes by jazz composers like Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Wayne Shorter that have been widely performed and recorded by jazz musicians and singers of mid-20th century popular music.

As with any artistic category, sometimes the boundary lines are a little hard to draw. For example, certain 19th-century ragtime pieces, Brazilian bossa novas, folks songs, and even adaptations of classical music have become jazz standards. The important distinguishing factor for a jazz standard is that it is a piece of music that many professional and amateur jazz musicians have recorded and played live as jazz music.

Newer Compositions

If you have a particular interest in "newer" jazz compositions (those from about 1970 to the present), or pop music from the rock / R&B + soul / hip-hop eras arranged for jazz performance, please let us know, and then make some lead sheets. We'll try to find a good home for your work on MuseScore.com.

Saxophone Ensembles

11 discussions • 211 scores • 829 members

The group is for sax ensemble sheet music, though your score can contain other instruments as well (not only saxes), but only if these instruments are just complementary, i.e. the arrangement could be played without those instruments.

Sax solo transcriptions

6 discussions • 34 scores • 774 members

For transcribed saxophone solos synchronized with youtube video/audio. So, you can see what is played and hear how it is played, and even slow down the playback speed to learn to play it!

Post your transcriptions and use the ones that are already done.

See the top post in "discussions" section of the group for more information.

By the way, the main "Saxophone" group is here, check it out as well:

OVNI Orquestra de Violoncelos Noturnos Interplanetários - Brasilia Cello Ensemble

2 discussions • 81 scores • 174 members

OVNI is a Brazilian Cello Orchestra established in 2015, which its first performance was at the Brasilia Planetarium, in October 1st 2015.
"OVNI" means UFO in Portuguese. A nice play of words to show the jolly spirit of the group.
Since then, students are improving the repertoire of cello ensemble for beginners, and playing music while the public can listen and see at the same time stars, planets, galaxies, the cosmos and all the wonders planetariums can provide.
The orchestra does its rehearsals at the Escola de Música de Brasilia (the capital of Brazil, just a few yards of the National Congress) under the supervision of cello teacher Danilo Chaib.
In 2017 the group changed the initial I which originally was meant for "Iniciantes" (Beginners) to "Interplanetários" (Interplanetary) which at this point makes more sense :)

Orchestral Saxophone

3 discussions • 7 scores • 157 members

“It cries, sighs and dreams. It possesses a crescendo and can gradually diminish until it is only an echo of an echo. I know of no other instrument that possesses this particular capacity to reach the outer limits of audible sound.”
-Hector Berlioz
The saxophone has great potential, but is often shunned. Here we can discuss how weave the saxophone into the orchestra with the maximun effectiveness.

Musecorps

14 discussions • 65 scores • 150 members

Musecorps (pronounced as "MuseCore") is a group that aims to provide a home for fans of both drum corps and marching band.

Have an original composition for a marching band? Did you arrange your favorite song(s) into a drum corps format? Do you have a transcription of a drum corps or marching band show you want heard? This is the place to do it!

I hope to hold arrangement/composition competitions in the near future, so keep an eye open for that!

Bass Solo Scores

5 discussions • 19 scores • 124 members

Note:
As the scores will added, they will be placed in the relevant discussion-catalogues with links.
========================

Amazingly, but on this site the "Search" doesn't find any groups with the word "bass" or "bass guitar" in the name!

Here it is supposed to gather a collection of scores in which the any bass (guitar or contrabass, bassoon or contrabassoon, or cello in the lower register, or another) has a really interesting party, own line, fully or partially solo.

Genre of music is not limited!
It should be a quality score of an interesting work — that's the only limitation!

Everyone can add their own brick to this beautiful Palace! :-)
