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.
