What are your favorite current recordings with good dynamic range, preferably jazz and blues?

I love blues, jazz/swing/standards, and roots-based rock & roll. Stuff like Lightnin' Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon, practically everything the Nat King Cole Trio ever recorded, The Ramsey Lewis Trio, most rockabilly and 50's rhythm and blues, I'm a huge fan of the White Stripes and I like some of the blusier Black Keys stuff I've heard.
What recent stuff (say, last 20-30 years) should I be listening to that intentionally is not over-compressed, super-loud and destroyed? Any old stuff that you care to mention that I have probably missed is more than welcome too.
