Shuffle genius

My iTunes has just transitioned from Wynton Marsalis playing "Chambers of Tain" from Live at Blues Alley to Wynton Marsalis conducting the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra in Ellington's "Thanks for the Beautiful Land on the Delta" and now has Wynton playing the Sinfonia from Il Barcheggio by Alessandro Stradella.

Following the baroque trumpet link is the Intrada from Telemann's Concerto No. 1 for three trumpets in D, in rondo form. This is followed by Brubeck playing "Blue Rondo a la Turk," and then Charlie Parker's "Parker's Mood." I'm not sure how to link from Parker to Tannhauser's "Gar viel und schön ward hier in dieser Halle", though. I suppose Parker does resound beautifully.
