What are some great jazz piano songs?

I am in Junior High and we are having a jazz cafe. I have been asked to provide filler music on the piano and I was wondering what some good songs would be.

    Duke Ellington's songs are great for the piano. But if you really want to impress, Dave Brubeck's Take Five is your best bet.
