When Charlie Parker made his famous "with strings" recordings, jazz musicians realized the potential of lushly orchestrated strings to enhance their own creativity. Legendary players soon followed suit, making a "with strings" album an essential rite of passage. Here are 10 beautiful standards arranged by jazz great and Grammy award-winning arranger Lennie Niehaus.

I Cover The Waterfront
Fools Rush In
You Go To My Head

You're My Everything
You And The Night And The Music
Autumn In New York

Rhythm Section: Steve Allee (p); Tyrone Wheeler (b); Steve Davis (d); Peter McHugh (Violins); Alan Oldfield (Synth Strings)

This play-a-long makes everyone sound great - even just playing the melodies - and is the perfect play-a-long with which to record yourself for posterity. Imagine an ancestor someday, 50 years from now: “my great-aunt used to play clarinet and was pretty good. There’s this old recording of her playing with a string section and she was awesome."
"Wow. That's really cool. What’s a clarinet?”

This is the play-a-long you could bring home to mother!
