Who needs words?

Gershwin–Rhapsody in Blue
DBQ–Take Five
Jean Pierre Rampal and Claude Bolling–Suite
for Flute and Jazz Piano

All of the songs on The Shawshank Redemption soundtrack.

Any instrumental Trent Reznor ever put together.

Beethoven’s Fifth, and A Fifth of Beethoven.

Can’t believe no one’s mentioned these:

Green Onions
Walk Don’t Run
Rebel Rouser

Whoops, forgot another one:


yeesh, now two more golden oldies sprung to mind:

Yakkety Sax
The Happy Organ
Sorry about the triple post.
