Jazz Lead Sheets


  • Our lead sheets are accurate and clearly notated. View a sample lead sheet!
  • The PDF files can be viewed and printed with Acrobat Reader after purchase.
  • C treble clef lead sheets are also designed for all rhythm section players and often have additional rhythm section information showing piano, bass or drum accompaniment lines or figures. Circled letters (note names) as part of chord progressions are bass notes.
  • For compositions that were originally recorded by a quintet (2 front line), harmony parts are occasionally included in the melody lead sheet, as long as they don't make the lead sheet too complicated.
  • Separate harmony parts (2nd part) are sometimes available for either B-flat, E-flat or C bass clef instruments.
  • Our lead sheets correspond to recordings available on iTunes or on other internet sources, so you can easily study the original performances. Click on the Purchase MP3 or CD link on each Song detail page and iTunes/Amazon/etc. will open to the recording.
