What good jazz songs are there to listen to?

I heard the Kenny G’s tenor sax solo in Katy Perry’s song last friday night or something. and i was thinking to myself that sounds really good it sounds like the intros they have in the beginning of saturday night live. Are there other jazz songs that have that intense, lively sax style that i can listen to?
