I played the piano for years classically when I was younger, but eventually left it alone in my late teens and twenties. I probably wouldn't have if I'd been allowed to do more Jazz as I always wanted to.

I'm just wondering where I can get hold of the scores of good Jazz scales to practice? I'm sure there are many different types but I don't know enough about it to even look!

This question is at least related, in particular the part about "The Real Book" volumes (the copies I have do not offer scales, but I don't think deducing them from the tons of nice songs they offer should be a problem). I'm not commenting about the "The Jazz Piano Book" because I don't know it. –  Anthony Labarre May 5 '11 at 11:32

The "Scale Syllabus" page inside any Jamey Aebersold book is a good resource.

And how about that, you can get it for free from his website in PDF format:
