I use BIAB. I like that you can enter whatever changes you want, and can choose from a variety of styles. I have entered in about 50 tunes from the "real Book" and use it to practice. I just mute the bass line and viola' I'm in the trio.
Now it isn't like playing with real people, but the new version does a pretty good job of changing the style of comping and chord voicings. You can also set different sections yourself, like a bridge or chorus.
Like I said before, it isn't real people, but I think it has worked well for me in making practicing a little more fun. I can go over the smae progression forever and no one complains, except maybe my neighbors.
Thats my 2 cents.
