First performance

Well this week I did my first public performance - a pool party with some friends who love me whether I do well or not!! Good  safe place to  start I would say. It  went pretty well except I was surprised who nervous  I was. I have been playing and performing for many many years but not with pans.

seeking backtracks and sheet music

I play double tenor and am looking to buy quality backtracks with corresponding sheet music to add  to my repertoire. I'm a strict reader and weak with improv.  Brad Shores has been a Big help and I have all 9 of his books.  Any other suggestions for expanding my repertoire?  Thanks!
