When all the guys join in singing...only they're yelling it from the back of the band

Okay what is the name of the kind of swing music where the band does call and response with the singer? Not the backup singers. The horn section. [more inside]

Little Big Band Music

Big band music is like the speed metal of jazz. But I'm more into the stripped down sound of "normal" jazz bands, that would have maybe one trumpet, one clarinet, etc... Could anyone recommend some intense big band music that's crammed into a "little band" format?
