The david Amaram track was very cool, indeed.

I agree. Remarkable how one can agonize over a list like this, beyond the absolutely obvious..."Pull My Daisy" for Amram, or a track from his most widely-heard (probably still) and probably most influential soundtrack recording? "My Funny Valentine" for the Mulligan/Baker quartet? The Jimmy Giuffre Trio should probably be up with "The Train and the River"....
