These fonts are a unique and useful collection with many features.

**NOTE: Jazz Font Set includes all 5 fonts listed below. This includes Jazz, JazzText, JazzText Extended, JazzCord and JazzPerc fonts.

Explanation of Fonts

(All 5 fonts below are included if you purchase the Jazz Font Set.  Swing Fonts contain all of the same characters as Jazz Fonts, and are sold seperately).

  • Jazz: This is the MUSIC font. It contains all the characters needed for music notation, such as note heads, accidentals, articulations, and more. 
  • JazzText: The selection of characters makes this font special. You can use these brackets for enclosures, such as boxes for rehearsal letters or numbers. You can also make brackets of any text expression. See the character maps for your choices of brackets and their keystrokes.
  • JazzText Extended: This font is the latest addition to the Jazz Font Set and is identical to the JazzText font, only instead of the bracket characters, in contains the extended characters that are used in text containg international letters such as:
  • JazzCord: This is the CHORD SUFFIX font. It contains characters that make up entire chord suffixes as well as the letters used to denote the chord itself. Time has been taken to piece all of the suffixes together - such as - within the characters of the font itself in order to give them a more hand written look. However, in case you desire to create your own suffixes, I have broken them down into smaller pieces . These suffixes are also intelligent in that they are fully transposable in Finale just like your own chord suffixes. You can load the libraries, Jazz Chords and Jazz Chords 2 which have all of the suffixes, or you can create your own libraries. Note that both libraries are the same except for the way the major and minor symbols are notated. In the first library, major is notated with a triangle and minor with a dash. In the second library, major is written as MA and minor is MI. Choose a library based on your preference. *TIP* Be sure to select JazzCord as your chord symbol and chord accidental font. If you don't, Finale will display the accidentals incorrectly.
  • JazzPerc: Based on the percussion font that accompanies Finale. All of the characters are present, but with the look of the Jazz Font Set.
