Fly with Skylark

Always loved this tune and Jazzbacks Quiet Zone track was just what I wanted. I play jazz guitar and for practising and performance they can't be beaten.

Just what I was looking For

Love the song and it’s history. Great with a small combo but especially like the intimacy and arrangement of this piano only to accompany a guitar. The airy parts make it special and allow for some improv. Tasteful performance and production.

Skylark et all

I enjoy these arrangement very much. They are played simply yet tasteful. Having the sheet music is great too. Being a drummer turning to guitar, these backing tracks keep me busy and feeling good when playing along. Maybe up a level of complexity (but not too much!! ;o)
