I think Transport Tycoon has Jazz songs in its playlist too, I'm not sure though.
Hm...After some quick searching on youtube, indeed it does.

Also here are some more Sim City 3000 Tracks people have posted on YouTube:

Ah, why is the video gaming potential of Jazz so otherwise ignored?
I wouldn't mind some Dave Brubeck or Miles Davis while taking on Bowser...
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

One of the most unappreciated songs, Ripple Star theme.
I thought it deserved some praise since it has an awesome jazzy toon.

God I love this song :D
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Gosh, the entire Final Fantasy 7 soundtrack was gold.  I don't know many that deny that.

I still love "I'm Still Alive" by GLADoS.
Hey love crusader, I want to be your space invader
For you I will descend the deepest moon crater
I is more stronger than Darth Vapour
Obey me, I is your new dictator

*Necrobump*

I thought "Dear hearts and gentle people" was really nice when they used it in the fallout 3 trailer. Ironic appropriation, and all that. Oh, and fallout 2 had a jazz song in it, so it's not just the SC' series.

Still alive WAS awesome the first time I heard it. And the second time. And the third time. And the fourth, badly sung, time. And the fifth time, well, by then I'd lost my appreciation.

Baba Yetu from Civilization 4

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G30MhXmlZGE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G30MhXmlZGE</a>

One of those songs that breaks the barrier between 'video game music' and 'music.'
Yes. Of course.

There are very few Indie games that have the awe as An Untitled story.
