Tunes that best exemplify, characterize and define an artist.

If you could choose only one tune that best exemplifies a banjo players style, creative imagination and manual dexterity on the instrument, what would it be?
I can offer a few from some of my favorite players;

Alison Brown, The Magnificent Seven
Bobby Thompson, Big Chief with Marcel Dadi
Scott Vestal, Up On The Blue Ridge
Don Reno, Dixie Breakdown
Steve Hanson, Gray Eagle

I think Earl's Breakdown by Flatt & Scruggs, 1951 is a wonderful example of what you asked about.
