Trombone karaoke, backing tracks, music minus one, what ever you call it, when you don't have a group to play with, this is a good option to keep up the chops and improvise a little.
Some of these backing tracks I made using the "Band-in-a-Box" software, some are from karaoke-version.com and some from other sources around the internet.

I especially like the karaoke-version site because each instrument is on a separate track so you can customize the backing track to your taste. (and its not expensive)

I expect to have about 20 of my favorite t-bone karaoke tunes here over the next few months, so check back soon for more.

The "Audio" after some of the selections are my rather primitive basement Lair recordings. They are meant to give you a rough idea.

Skylark
The classic Hoagy Carmichael tune, still sounds great to me.
The sheet music is -Here- and the backing track: B-Track
   Audio

In The Mood
The classic Glenn Miller tune, like Dorsey's Trombonology, this is quite difficult
to play well all the way through. The sheet music is -Here-.
This trancsription for trombone is by Bernard Dewagtere.

Trombonology
A solo trombone with piano arrangement of the Tommy Dorsey tune, by
Benjamin Coy. The sheet music is at: tenorposaune.com
I put the piano part of Benjamin Coy's arrangement into my "Forte" software
to produce a piano backing track. A practice tempo version B-Track 159 bpm and
an up tempo version B-Track 180 bpm .


Park Avenue Petite
A version transcribed for trombone is -Here-.
By Benny Golson, a nice down tempo tune, I first heard it from a Blue Mitchell
album "Blue Soul" (1959). Not much on the internet as far as lead sheets or
other information. Giz Bowe put together a lead sheet and I made a "Band-in-a-Box"
backing track based roughly on the Giz Bowe lead sheet. B-Track
