Such as Autumn Leaves, any 12 Bar blues (Freddie Freeloader, Sonny Moon For Two, Blue Monk), Rhythm Changes (such as Anthropology, Oleo)...

What sort of gigs are you trying to get from this, and we can cater a set list to your show.
So far, for busking. We've got september and anthropology (not saying they sound good yet :p). We're thinking stuff like moondance, etc, mainly songs that people know with a few goodies chucked in there ;)
