2019 Jazz Jam with Tony & Pete Levin

Songs - Charts & MP3 download links

July 16, 2019

These are the songs we'll be doing this year; they're in alphabetical order, not in set list order.  The set list will be on the TOAPP sign-up sheet.

Clicking on a blue title will let you download a compressed ZIP folder containing an MP3 of the song and a printable 8.5x11 chart in PDF format. In some cases, there are multiple charts with the melodies transposed for different instruments - Bb, Eb, etc. 

Downloads are from Citrix/Sharefile, a very secure download site.  No password is required.  Download requests are all logged as "anonymous" - no personal info is needed or taken.

If you have trouble or are unable to open a ZIP folder,
email me and we'll get you straight.  Pete
