    I recommend "Band in a Box". It's a program that you type in the chords and select a style and tempo, and it creates a backing for you over midi. It can be rock, jazz, hip hop, smooth jazz, blues, and many many specific styles within each genre. You can mute any part of the ensemble to solo, comp, sing, or what have you. If I remember it was a pretty good price, something like a hundred bucks for that much functionality didn't seem so bad.
    The interface isn't great, but that's all I have to complain about.

    Not necessarily smooth jazz, but a bunch of jazz standards.

    And notice the "song list" on the tool bar - will have the chord progressions used in the backing tracks.

    Have fun.

    Thanks chriscutler. I went to CoffeeBreakGrooves to find a song for an intro to the new project I'm putting together and Vol 4 Smooth Jazz had a lot of great tracks I can use. I ended up settling on Smooth Groove G Minor. It is perfect.

    I also found Southern Rock tracks to be very awesome. I know that in the near future I'll use Southern Rock A 168 bpm.

    It can be so frustrating finding new tracks. I don't mind paying a few bucks for a song if it's awesome...and I found a lot of awesome songs at Coffee Break Grooves.
