Good jazz song to learn on piano?

I wanna learn a cool jazz song, perferably modern (sounding). As long as it isn't too complex I can handle it, to give an idea of the level I'm at I can play Debussy's Clair de Lune and Arabesque without much trouble. Thanks.

    I love charless song choices, but for some more cool arrangements, check out Jamie Cullum on almost anything off the "Pointless Nostalgic" album. All of these except a couple are modern arrangements of jazz "standards" with a few originals thrown in. Good luck getting into the world of jazz, you'll love it.
