We all love the classics; we consider them to be modern standards. Whether it's Blue in Green, Flamenco Sketches, Giant StepsRuby My Dear (Monk)... or even Ruby My Dear (Coltrane), we can never get enough. But let's not forget that while we love these songs and the artists who created them, we're musicians as well! We all strum and blow and drum and sing. So in the interest of musical do-it-yourselfers everywhere, check out these sheet music and CD combos!
