    Is there a recommended website or book with the chords to a lot of jazz standards?

    I do not need notes as I intend to practice improvising walking bass lines. Just looking for the chords.

    The Real Book is the way to go IMO. There are several releases out there at this point, and the charts are generally pretty good.

    there is a CD you can get for ~$15-20 on *bay that has a pretty large collection of these fake books in PDF format.

    The hard copy book is cool becasue you get all the tunes. But, if you have a computer and printer, I find the CD version pretty cool because you get all the Real Book editions plus 5 or 6 others, and you can print off the charts you want.

    good luck
