Listed below are albums that contain excellent performances of tunes that appear in The Changes. The album names are linked to the page on Amazon that describes that album. The song titles that are listed below an album title are recorded on that album and are linked to the page in The Changes that provides the chord sequence for that tune.

Each chord sequence page from SongTrellis that is reachable from this list includes a link which will allow you to hear a performance of the tune. Look for the link towards the bottom of the page that says "Listen to a sample performance of this song". Frequently, this link will allow you to hear the tune's entire melody as it's played with its chord accompaniment.

Recently, the Lala.com website has provided a means to place a widget on a webpage which will perform all of the music on an album for visitors. You'll see such widgets below. If you press the Play buttons in front of the album name or in front a track name, the album or track you've chosen should play.

I consider  the albums listed here to be the foundation of my own music collection. I recommend them to you enthusiastically. When one of these songs is mentioned, the album listed is the one that instantly comes to mind.

When the song is performed by the composer, as is true for many of the jazz compositions listed here, you'll be hearing their best ideas on how to interpret their piece.
