This app is an indispensable part of every practice session. The portable, easy access to 1000+ jazz standards alone is worth the price. But these guys also included a little fake band to back you while you practice the songs. 🤘 You can edit the band by choosing instruments, turning them off and on, and mixing their volumes. You clean easily change the tempo of each song, the key of each song, and the basic groove of each song. Night mode is perfect. Highly recommended.

This is app really helps in reducing the amount of paper music I need to take on a gig sometimes. BUT, take the time to plan a set and make sure the changes to the tunes are correct. lt has its limitations of course, not being able to mark rhythmic accents being one of them. But I find it extremely useful in displaying charts on my 12" tablet when the bass player and I have to read the same chords in an unfamiliar key for a singer. Manage expectations, learn the tool, and it will be v helpful.

Took a while for me to fully appreciate this app, but this a great tool for a student of jazz. You can get an accurate chart of any jazz standard, transpose to any key, export a pdf of your chart--you get a back track, change the tempo. I think I have access to 1200 songs. Try that with a fake book! And good customer service as well. Must have for any jazz student.
