Could you recommend some bold, brassy, sassy swing music, especially
where sung by women?

Hello there. I'm going through a swing music phase at the moment, and am loving the whole upbeat, bold, brassy, dancy, silly-and-sophisticated mood of it. But it seems a lot of it is sung by men. Can you recommend some swing music sung by women to balance things out and that'll keep my ass lindyhopping, jiving, and generally swinging? Or... if there's some absolute gem sung by a man (or an instrumental, come to think of it) then I'll take that too.
The sort of mood I'm looking for would be songs like Gimme Some Rhythm Daddy by the Brian Setzer Orchestra
, or Go Daddy-O by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
