  • We start off with Chez Thomas, by Charles Delarue

  • Go to The Graceful Ghost, one of William Bolcom's 3 Ghost Rags.

  • Then Krzysztof Komeda's Ballet Edude II

  • A touch of Ellington playing A Single Petal on a Rose.

  • Sneeuwland by Oskar Schuster.

  • Judith by Jacob David.

Notes

  • I read a bunch of articles on Jackie, but if you're looking for one-stop-shopping that can send you off in other research avenues, I'd probably suggest this article by Zack Harold in Lapham's Quarterly.
