Also look into obtaining Band-in-a-Box

And Jamie Aebersold's play-along series (books 2 and 3 are especially nice) are useful

The Jamey Aebersold playalongs are great. My school's jazz library has about twenty of them: two Miles Davis, two Coltrane, and one for Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins, Benny Golson, Thelonius Monk, etc. along with about five two-CD standards books and a bossa book.

They're the way to go tbh.

don't get attached to backing tracks, it's better to just work with your metronome, the dynamics of backing tracks tends to make your playing more sterile because you're consistently playing over the same crap

site with jazz backing tracks

Hi guys,
Another place to find some nice backing tracks (for free):

www.groovery.com

I don't think you'll get use to 1 pattern, since this site gives you several tracks for each standard.
