I don't know of such a website, but later this evening I'll see what I can find for you as far as different versions go.
Off the top of my head, Matthew Shipp covers the tune on his new album "To Duke", its a piano trio, not solo piano, also on "Live at MontreauX", Sun Ra does a lengthy intro to the tune on solo piano before the band enters.
Both of these versions are fairly avant-garde, when I get a few minutes I'll find some more for you.

Here is an album where the Duke plays it on solo piano along with several other tunes.
