All matching is case insensitive, and all characters typed are searched for literally so don't use quotation marks unless the title you're looking for has quotation marks in it.
It doesn't make any difference what order you type your words in, but every word or partial word you type must be matched by some part of the title to get a hit on that title. If you give a very short search string such as "a" or "love" then this will match too many titles for the search to be useful.
In this case you will get a messsage suggesting that you should be a bit more specific. If the title you are looking for is actually several words long then the best way to be more specific is to add some more words or partial words to your search. Alternatively if the title is short you could specify that only short titles should be matched, by making a selection in the "Match titles of length" selection list, or you could specify "Match whole words only" which means that "love" will not match a title with the word "lover" in it.
Normally, the matching of partial words is useful: Accented characters appear as their unaccented equivalents i. French "e-acute" becomes plain "e".
Paired quotation marks always use double-blip quotes Take the "A" Train. Single-blip is used only as apostrophe Ain't Misbehavin'. By an amazing coincidence it just so happens that that we Seventh String Software have written a program specifically to help with this task.

Enter the fake book! Usually each tune has the basic chords for the song, the melody, the basic form written out. It seems like in the last 10 years the number of fake books on the market has tripled. I think publishers see the increase demand for these books and so they churn them out faster and faster.
Now, some of these books are great. They have the correct chords, harmonizations that jazz musicians would actually play, melodies accurately notated, and the books are easy to read. Many of the fake books are absolutely horrendous though!
Poor chord choices, inaccurate melodies, riddled with mistakes, poor line spacing etc. I own and use all of these.
Armed with these books you should be set for a long time on your jazz tune learning journey! The series also has many tunes that vocalists tend to call at gigs. Very useful. The listed chords changes are excellent. The tunes listed in there are called on a regular basis as well. Also, all the lines are written in 4 bar phrases.
This makes it easy to read and play. The chords in this book are excellent as well. I suppose it would be nice if the fakebooks were spiral bound but I know that would make the books way more expensive then they are.
This book tends to feature more compositions by jazz composers as opposed to just standard American Songbook type stuff. For that reason I love it. The lines are written in 4 bar phrases. All in all an excellent fake book.
The Real Book: Sixth Edition. This is the fake book that everybody seems to have a copy of.
It was hard to find for a long time. The publishing rights on the songs were eventually secured though and now it is legal and easily downloadd. Has a large variety of tunes from the first years of jazz. That way you can refer to the same charts as many other musicians.
