Miles Davis
Bitches Brew
In A Silent Way pt2
Kind of Blue
 
 
Colosseum
Valentyne Suite

Peaches In Regalia
King Kong
 
John Coltrane
Giant Steps
Naima
Syeeda's Song Flute

I question whether anything on your list is a "classic" jazz composition.  Try things like "In a Sentimental Mood" or "Autumn Leaves."
