My 9 Favorite Youtube Channels for Jazz Play Alongs

Before I really started using Youtube, I loved playing along to Aebersold tracks. Working through the tunes in the books and then performing them along with a top-notch band always made practice that much enjoyable. Youtube, however, has allowed for so much more diversity in the play along industry and there are a ton of fun tracks available online for free!

Here are just a few of my favorite Youtube channels for jazz playalongs.

1. DC Music School – you can’t go wrong with gypsy jazz

2. Backing Track Professional – for funk and blues, check out this channel

3. Learn Jazz Now – for straight ahead jazz

4. Coffee Break Grooves – for smooth jazz, check out this channel

5. Learn Jazz Standards – I’ve mentioned their site before and how much I love what they do. Check out their channel with tons of great straight ahead playalongs.

6. GBQuartet – for some more gypsy jazz

7. Jam Tracks Channel – for more funk, rock and blues

8. Fruition Music Performance Tracks – if you’re looking for something more gospel oriented, check out this channel
