Any suggestions for an easy book of standards. I play alto but am very much at the beginner stage. It would be nice to practice some tunes I like (not that I've got anything against "On top of old smokey" but you know what I mean ;})

Thanks!

Have you looked at the "100 graded alto sax solos" books? They have pieces graded 1, 2 or 3 stars.
The 1 star pieces are really easy, but are still real tunes, and they are all recognisable pieces.
I can play many of the 2 star pieces, but still struggle with some of the 3 star pieces - so it's a good investment for years to come.

Have a look at Hal Leonard book of ballads, real slow tunes most of them and you you have oarts where you can improvise over them.
