i need a couple jazz songs for an audition at a college, so i need some suggestions. I'm relatively new to jazz, but i know quite a bit about blues. So what would be some good bluesy jazz songs or musicians? so far all i know of is riviera paradise and jeff beck.

Listen to some Miles Davis. He has got the best cool blues songs of all time.

You should pick some robert cray. he is more bluesy but alot of his songs are jazzy. afraid of the dark is a good hit by robert cray or Eric Clapton and robert cray wrote the song Old love also very good! :)

Don't play something you're not familiar with for an audition.

You NEED to be able to hear what you're playing to sound convincing.
