Remember 20th century serious composers have written pieces specifically for jazz musicians including Benny Goodman and Dave Brubeck. Worth digging out the "Jazz" album released by the conductor Simon Rattle some 20 years ago, to get some examples of these pieces. On 'Jazz' too  you'll find the rarely played jazz arrangement of  Gershwin's 'Rhapsody In Blue' originally made for Paul Whitemans Orchestra  -  I believe  Whiteman and co.  were the first to play 'Rhapsody'. This is a composition  that has slipped into the classic repertoire with the more familiar classical orchestral arrangement. Something similar seems to have happen to Scott Joplin's rags through Joshua Rifkin's albums .

I have the Paul Whiteman album, Rhapsody In Blue"as well with "An American In Paris". Released as double format,( album each side of the record) It was one of my mums records. I have not played it. I kept the album though and you have piked my interest some what. Thought it might be a bit too staid for my taste. I knew to keep the record though Smile

I'll start with the out of print and very rare BS&T score to The Owl and the Pussycat, a farce based on the Manhoff play with a simmering blend of brass pop, hard bop, and faux Baroque.   I don't even think its ever been on CD, though I have the movie.

Next would be the criminally ignored Brandenburg Gate:Revisited by Brubeck and friends

Finally a personal fave since childhood, MJQ's incomparable Blues On Bach
