I want to find a jazz chart.

I'll be honest with you, this is tricky! You can do a word search on Jazz in the CSU East Bay Library Catalog and then "Modify the Search" to limit the results to "Music-Printed." That gets some method books as well as charts. If you are looking for a particular jazz chart, please contact me, Tom Bickley, using the information on the right of this page. Alternatively, it's always good to check with Prof. Mitch Butler, Director of Jazz Studies in the CSU East Bay Music Department. You can email him at

Even with that confession, you may find our Fake Books very helpful (What's a "Fake Book"? A collection of lead sheets for pop songs that you can use to "fake" a good performance of the music.)
