Pairing down an essential tunes list even further, but maintaining a breadth of styles, Ed Byrne had suggested the following 10 tunes for getting started:

1. Swing Standard: “There Will Never Be Another You”

(Ed Byrne's solo transcription and Carnegie Hall performance on “There Will Never Be Another You” with Chet Baker)

2. Bossa: “Blue Bossa”

3. Waltz: “All Blues”

4. Ballad: “In a Sentimental Mood”

5. Blues: “Blue Monk”

6. Changing feels: “Green Dolphin Street”

7. Funky: “Watermelon Man"

8. Classic: “Summertime”

9. Bop Blues: “Au Privave”

10. Swing Minor Standard: “Autumn Leaves”

(don't miss Jake Hanlon's study on Autumn Leaves )
