Learn Jazz standards part 3: Tunes in 3/4 time

Learn Jazz standards part 3:
Tunes in 3/4 time

I’m guessing that most of your repertoire is in 4/4 time. However, 3/4 is just as important and fun to play. This time I’ve also given you the structure (form) of each tune.

If you just want to choose a couple, I’d start with Some Day My Prince Will Come and Bluesette.

So here are 12 tunes in walz time to add to your jazz repertoire.
