Top 10 Best Jazz Songs


The Top TenXW

1What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

This is a beautiful, really really beautiful song. Just listening to it makes me so happy and if you search the video on youtube Louis Armstrong also sings it so beautifully, smiling the whole time. Beautiful Lyrics, great, soulful singer.

Best from American my humble opinion

2Take Five - Dave Brubeck

It's got a memorable piano riff, an excellent drum solo and an all around relaxing vibe to it. I love it. - ArchAces

This was a defining song, it was the first time a white person had created a successful jazz song.It issued the style of modern Jazz, Paul Desmond's solo is a catchy but skilful masterpiece in a 5/4 format and not to mention the cheekiness of Dave out weighs everything.

Best song... no more

This is the best jazz song ever by miles...

3Acknowledgment - John Coltrane Quartet

Just the best one. What a wonderful world is beautiful, but is not jazz, is pop. - dibildox912

4My Favorite Things - Dave Brubeck
5All Blues - Kenny Burrell
6Birdland - Maynard Ferguson

This song has a great bass riff, excellent solos on multiple instruments and a very memorable 'chorus.' It's an enjoyable listen and Ferguson's outstanding trumpet playing makes it all the more so.

7So What - Miles Davis

A classic from a classic album. This song is new every time I listen to it. It is not the only song from 'Kind of Blue' that should be on the list but it is my favorite. This song, and the album it is on, influenced multiple jazz, pop, and rock musicians. - mgenet

I love this song.

8Strange Fruit - Nina Simone
9Song for My Father - Hermao Feriera
10Sing, Sing, Sing - Benny Goodman and His Orchestra

A variational song that can make you feel, calm, cool, happy, sad, angry and stressful. Yes all in one

Starts slow, then upbeat and then irritating. A mix of drums, electric guitar and a trumpet later on. A more calmer one is Life In A Glass House

Calm, stressful, rocking, swinging
