The Great American Song Book (Jazz Standards)

A friend once told me the best way to get familiar with the jazz standards is to buy the complete recordings of Frank Sinatra. Frank has recorded most of the jazz standards, or the songs that have become known as the Great American Song Book. About once a year I splurge and buy eight to ten cds in one day. I had one of these flings recently. I bought three cds by Steve Tyrell, one by John Pizzarelli, three by Pearl Django and the Frank Sinatra box set titled A Voice In Time.
