The new way to practice jazz!
Genius Jamtracks, the play-along app for jazz musicians that thinks and plays like an actual trio.
With an impressively realistic sound and feel, it helps you build your repertoire, your jazz vocabulary and master polyrhythms.
Genius Jamtracks introduces "New Standards: 101 Lead Sheets by Women Composers" - a monumental publication and effort led by Terri Lyne Carrington, founder and artistic director of Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice.
“Genius Jamtracks is easily the best play along app out there! Particularly the piano voicings are more logical and realistic than other play-along apps. The bass and drums are not just a simple repetitive pattern, but actually use some jazz language. And it’s nice that you can make the band busy in unpredictable ways. As much like playing with a real group as you can get from an algorithm. Highly recommended!“
“It’s like a jazz musician wrote it. The drums and piano are just like how a jazz drummer and pianist would play. Couldn’t be an easy task to create that!”
- Create your own songs with Genius Jamtracks using an easy and intuitive interface.
Get creative and listen to how your compositions swing with the Genius Jamtracks trio.
- Edit the charts for your favourite jazz standards however you like.
- Option to create your own playlists of songs.
- Easy to read charts!
Custom fonts make for beautiful, easy to read chord charts.
- Rhythmic Complexity slider
Start with simple comping and work your way up to mastering superhuman polyrhythms!
- Harmonic Complexity slider
Start with triads and work your way up to advanced substitutions and reharmonisation of the song.
- The one and only polyrhythmic play-along!
In the Jam Session mode, the app decides on its own what to play and when to play it, based on the style of the song and the tempo. Experiment with how the app transforms the rhythm and the harmony according to the slider levels.
- Master your polyrhythms!
Focus on a specific grouping, polyrhythm or rhythmic displacement. Ask the trio – or an individual instrument – to include only what you’ve requested when they introduce polyrhythmic phrasing.
As you won’t know when or how it will be used though, this feature also helps sharpen your ability to improvise as well as mastering that rhythm!
- Why it sounds great.
It’s all in the dynamics, note durations, space and feel. The Genius Jamtracks trio pays close attention to each of these elements to make the Genius Jam Session experience as close to the real thing as possible.
- A real swing feel!
Forget the robotic triplets of other play-alongs. When changing the tempo, the app doesn’t simply play faster or slower, the swing feel changes as well. The app learned how to swing by internalising the jazz vocabulary and playing based on real transcriptions from the masters.
- Actual voice leading!
No matter what your settings are, just press play and you’ll always have the same attention to voice leading from the pianist and the same effort in creating beautiful lines from the bassist to accompany you.

Ratings and Reviews
The best play-along ever made!
Huge library of jazz standards + the option to put your own chords, the sound is just great and most of all it sounds natural and not taaaaaa taa-ka-taaa like other apps.
I was using audio backing tracks recorded by jazz musicians. This one is the first software that can create that real feel.
Please keep developing what you have started. Thank you
