Old-fashioned instrumental jazz?

Please recommend music similar to this Jack Teagarden version of When Your Lover Is Gone. Slow, instrumental, a little bluesy - I'm trying to class up a cocktail party overlooking the Pacific Ocean but can't afford a band.

Hmm it seems like that Metafilter reference might make it harder to play in-line.. if anyone else is having that problem, the sample is here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000QP3ND0/ref=dm_dp_trk61

Here are some candidates. These versions just happened to be handy on the Web. Look around for other versions and you may find some that you like better.

"Mean to Me"

"I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues"

"Chelsea Bridge"

"Mood Indigo"

"Turquoise"
