Hot jazz where the words keep up with the music

My favorite kind of song: fast, swingy jazz with lyrics that are witty and/or intricately rhymed, performed by somebody who delivers the words and the music with equal skill. Examples include Bobby Short singing 'Nagasaki', Ella Fitzgerald singing 'Everything I've Got', and Louis Jordan singing pretty much anything. What other performances should I check out?

Moar music like Blue Vipers (acoustic swing?)!

I love The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and would like more music like it! Suggestions? I particularly love them live and acoustic and wish their albums were just recorded in a room with a mic or two - so lower fi is cool; More produced isn't what I want. Also particularly love the vocalist and vocal harmonies (although instrumental is great too). Thanks! [more inside]
