Top 10 Best Jazz SongsAlexandr
The Top Ten
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.
The most important jazz composition of all time; technically and for content. A blessing.
This is the best jazz song ever by miles...
Great jazz piece. Paul DesmondV 12 Comments
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.
This is just great, with an amazing message "They're really saying/I love you" "What a wonderful World." And Armstrong is a wonderful singer/musician. My grandfather saw him perform this live. Though for the beginning of my life I was sure he was the space guy...
It is really a nice song, I have just begun to listen to jazz and came across this, it is soothing to ears, and sounds like a vintage classic.
Jazz for ignorant people. Great song though. - DibildoxV 16 Comments
Just the best one. What a wonderful world is beautiful, but is not jazz, is pop. - dibildox912
This has got to be one of the best songs ever recorded. It's just do beautiful and expressive. Trane was so beautiful.
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.
One of the best voices forgotten today. Real diva of blues/jazz when the word "Diva" meant something
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
After you listen to this song you can't help but be more knowledgeable about music.
As a trumpeter, there's no argument here. It's Miles.V 2 Comments
It is impossible to hear this song without wanting to get up and dance. The thump of the drums, the edge of the brass, and the melodic sound of the saxophones come together beautifully in this instantly recognizable piece.
So much energy. This piece really stands out.
Played this in jazz band, awesome song.
Name one bad thing about this piece.
Well, get up and dance, darnit.
Great piece, but Horace Silver wrote it
My favorite piece. That's it.
A variational song that can make you feel, calm, cool, happy, sad, angry and stressful. Yes all in one
Calm, stressful, rocking, swinging
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
Was gonna vote for Hatian fight song, but this counts apparently, and it is one of my favorite songs from my favorite band. Sorry, Mingus.V 4 Comments
Very smooth; very sexy; very soulful and VERY Nina Simone. - Britgirl
