I say it all the time: Learn jazz - make music, and to do that you need to know some songs, so in this video, I am going to go over 10 jazz standards that you want in your repertoire and are great places to start learning jazz. This is in terms of playing changes and knowing all the chords and scales but also about the form that you want to know which is going to make it easier to learn more complicated standards.
When talking about the songs I will try to reference great versions of them, and also talk about whether this song may be a good place to start for you if you are looking for songs to learn.
If you already know a lot of songs and have some other suggestions for this list then let me know about that in the comments to this video. Sharing information like that is really useful for everybody checking it out!! I'll talk about the first standards I learned later in the video, none of those are on the list.
