Jazz trio will be doing a 50th wedding anniversary party and was asked to play some tunes that would have been popular during that era. Looking for suggestions of instrumental numbers. All suggestions are welcome. This will be a dinner setting/not dancing, but uptempo songs are ok too.

Thanks for your help.

Songs for Swinging Lovers was out so
Let's get away from it all,
I've got you under my skin,
Making Whoopee,
If you've got a piano and the Sinatra hat, Give me one for my baby and one more for the road.
Now that reminds me of my great age, must go for a lie down.
