Hello, all,
I came across an old cassette tape with a bunch of jazz tunes on it. I have no idea what the names of most of the songs are, much less who the artists are. Can anyone out there help me identify these songs and even a guess at the artist(s)? I've made a clip of part for each song. Thanks!!

- I think this one might be called "Night Train"

- different version of "Night Train"?

- yet another version of "Night Train"?

Nice collection! It sounds like various artists and unfortunately those collection records are numerous.
Nr 8 sounds like Miles Davies, but apart from that I have no clue.

I'm not convinced it's "Night Train" played on some of the tracks. But it's definitely different takes of the same tune.

Sorry not to be able to help you more. Keep on searching. Good luck.

Torben - Thanks anyway.

In case anyone is interested, here's what I've determined so far, based on input from folks on a couple of different jazz forums:

1 - Blues in the Closet
2 - ???
3 - ???
4 - What's New (Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, or John Coltrane?)
5 - Night Train (Oscar Peterson?)
6 - Night Train (Ray Brown, album entitled "Don't Forget the Blues" ?)
7 - Night Train (Maynard Ferguson?)
8 - Barbados (Charlie Parker or Stan Getz?)
9 - ???
10 - Skylark (Tal Farlow?)
