I want to create a best of section for OK Jazz. Please share your favourites in a post, but titles only, not Youtube, as it will be too much in size. List a maximum of 15 songs. In the end I summarize and create a list in alphabetic order.

My list:

1. Zala Sportif
2. Tangawizi
3. Matata Na Mwasi Na Mobali Esilaka Te
4. Jerome
5. Dje Melasi
6. Bolingo Ya Bougie
7. Assitu
8. Musica Thellema
9. Muzi
10. Transberos
11. Tres Impoli
12. Tonton
13. Ba Katanga Balingi Toyokana
14. Peuch Del Sol
15. Mino ya Luambo Diamant

This one is so difficult

Le Pouvoir Noir (1970)
Kinzonzi Kitata Mbemba (1973)
Assitu (1973)
Nakobala Mbwa (specially the third version, 1973)
[if the recording session of Assitu and Nakobala Mbwa was compiled as an album it would've been so nice]
Matata Na Mwasi Na Mobali Esilaka Te (1975)
Liberte (1975)
Tosambi Bapeji Yo Raison Na Quartier (1975)
Na Koma Mbanda Na Mama Ya Mobali Na Ngai (1975)
[briefly: all of Franco's compositions in the "20ème Anniversaire" album]
Mpaka Lowi (1976)
Mujinga (1981)
Princesse Kiku (second take, 1982)
and muuuuuuuuuch others!

He was a genius.

All authors from the OK Jazz group welcomed, in case the song was released as OK Jazz. So Chandra by Josky, etc. does not count.
