Biab is great, and I believe you can open midis with it, and there are lots of free midis of jazz standards out there, for instance http://victorian.fortunecity.com/plath/210/emidi.htm
is a place where you can download lots. There used to be a real jazz book downloadable out there in biab format, but I don't know if it's still available.


http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/1114/justjaz1.htm is another place for free jazz midis. I think they open in biab, but I just drag them into garageband, and add my guitar or so.

Biab is a super app, and you can write your own tunes, or take a standard and do your own score, change instruments or whatever you want to do, and the quality is very fine!

I have to update the info in the previous post; biab can import the chords from midi,not open the actual midi file.
However, the link to phillipsmusic.net is valid, and a biab real jazz book (more than 500 tunes) can be downloaded! Nothing illegal, just download away, as they say, PG music has nothing to do with it.

I have looked on Amazon (I'm in the UK) but can't seem to find any. Ideally I would like CDs to put in the stereo rather than something that uses the PC.
