So far these are two of my favorite Jazz songs I've ever had the pleasure of either listening to (Chick on the Grill) or playing them (Basie Straight Ahead), Hope you all enjoy it as much as i did.

"Basie Straight Ahead" by Sammy Nestico (I know what the video says, but the sheet music for it says otherwise).

I hadn't heard either of those before, but you're right, they're really good. If you like those, give a listen to Hay Burner by Basie as well. Or pretty much anything he's done, I guess, but Hay Burner's my go-to jazz.

I've already listened to Hay burner before you've mentioned it. Though probably one of the most famous Jazz Pieces is Mambo Hot by Victor Lopez, Haven't found a good recording of it on Youtube though.
