When I was in high school I played piano in the jazz band. I was going through my stuff and found my realbook and it occurred to me that it would be awesome if I could play from it again. However, although my sightreading skills have improved since high school, I find it difficult to play songs like that without actually hearing them since I don't always know how the song really goes.
My question: I've found practice tracks (i.e. songs without a certain instrument meant for practice purposes) consisting of only rhythm sections for the real books, but I am having a hard time finding pratice tracks that are only guitar and bass for the purpose of practicing piano. Could anyone here point me in the right direction to find these tracks for the realbook that don't have the piano?
I have considered manually entering the melody into MuseScore or something like that and adding some drums and bass in the appropriate keys, but I don't have enough musical expertise to avoid getting frustrated when figuring out the correct rhythm for the drum part or getting impatient with entering notes using the computer keyboard.
