I've always been wanting to get into Jazz a bit, bought Ed Friedland's "Building Bass Lines", aquired "The new real book Vol. 1" with a bunch of standards in it. To top it all off, my band's drummer recently found a place where free-for-all jazz sessions are held at a regular basis. Thing is, I haven't progressed that much and my walking abilities still aren't exactly great, so I figured improving my jazz skills would perhaps be more fun with recordings. I found a few versions of "Autumn Leaves", everyone's first jazz standard, as far as I know, and really love the song and the melody, but most recordings I came across didn't exactly stick closely to the lead sheet in my real book. Can someone recommend me some recordings of Jazz standards by artists who don't modify the heck out of the poor tunes, i.e., use the original keys and chords? Lots of thanks in advance.
