    With Jazz, it's good to be able to play mostly anything out of the Real/Fake book. Pretty much everything in there is a standard.

    Some good Blues standards to know are:

    Hootchie Kootchie Man
    Boom, Boom, Boom
    Pride and Joy
    Jesus Just Left Chicago
    Sweet Home Chicago
    Red House
    Before You Accuse Me
    One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer
    The Thrill is Gone

    And if you really want to be different, you could always play the orginal, Fleetwood Mac version of Black Magic Women. :D
