What are some good jazz standards for a bassist to learn? I'm just getting into jazz and I want to have a solid standard repertoire.
I have a regular gig with some older cats, so Autumn Leaves and Blue Bossa are always somewhere in the set list. What I would suggest is getting your scales down and if you've got that part already taken care of, go and get yourself some charts. Hal Leonard Publishing has a ton of great jazz standard books for bass players.
