I kid, I kid! I do wonder what is the most recent recording listed; is it "Birdland"? That's from the mid 70s.

good list. a couple personal favs not there - Crepescule with Nellie, Parker's Mood, On Green Dolphin street, Embraceable You, West Coast Blues, Peace (Ornette) but as far as lists go, it's a good one

Yea - I guess, maybe jazz tunes need to stand the test of time more than rock.
I'm not sure I can think of that many great jazz songs written since 1980. I'm sure they exist, but it seems like there aren't as many great songs written.

or maybe all of us jazz fans are too much hung up on the past.

Lot's of good ones on that list. Here are a few more i like - off the top of my head (i.e. - will likely think of more as soon as I hit enter )

Crystal Silence - Chick Corea (both the Return to Forever version and the duo with Gary Burton ... Chick and Gary do a great version of Bill Evans Waltz for Debby, also)
Senor Mouse - Chick Corea
Elegant Gypsy and Mediterranean Sundance - Al Di Meola (and the Mediterranean Sundance version with John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia is sublime)
Black Market - Weather Report
Bluesette - Toots Thielemans
The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines - Joni Mitchell
Skylark - Ella Fitzgerald
and speaking of Ella - I see Duke Ellington's Take the A Train is included in the list of 100. Duke and Ella's collaboration on that tune is really tasty.

As much as I respect Louis Armstrong, I have a tough time seeing Wonderful World as a jazz piece. My .02 would be something by Fletcher Henderson, who was a large contributor to advancing the genre. Perhaps King Porter Stomp, which would also acknowledge Jelly Roll Morton.
