Probably Misty and So What. I heard a great version of Fever that was half-time funk with a double-time sax melody, but I can't find it anywhere.

there's tons and tons of covers to it
The original writer (in French) was Jaques Prevert
the english version was written by Jonny Mercer
some guitar versions can be heard by Joe Pass and John Scofield
