I'm going to refer all my music choices to Frankie and let him tell me whether or not they swing. I've got a pretty broad view of what swings, but I draw the line at WCS, Shag, basically a lot of what gets played (out). Sure, that might swing another way, but it's another way and if I have jackhamme...

Last time I talked to him (4 years + ago), he was trying to put together a boxed set or something. I'll see if I can locate my original contact information ...

I have a number of Louis Prime selections. Depending on the mood, I have no qualms on working one in. My current fave is "Closer to the Bone" off of *wait for it* the Ultra Lounge collections.
