Any jazz or blues pieces for me to practice?

So I've been spending a lot of time listening to pop and rock, and whatever I have been transcribing are from that genre. I'm trying to get back to blues and jazz and would like some suggestions on beginner pieces?

Learning the tune and changes to Ellington's Satin Doll and Take the A Train is an excellent introduction to traditional "swing" jazz. There are many of the elements common to jazz standards included in those tunes.

Thank you, everyone! So I got my homework cut out for me! Woohoo!

I need some help with eh..."fading". Like how to get from loud to soft because sometimes it just has a squeaky sound when I try to soften it.
