I have found several classic swing played by Salsa and Latin Jazz bands. If you ever wanted to mix Salsa into your swing set, these could be a good place to start.

You can look them up on iTunes/Amazon/Your other sources.

Arturo Sandoval - The A Train
Tito Puente - Sweet Georgia Brown (Out Of This World)
Tito Puente - Corner Pocket (Salsa Meets Jazz)
Woody Herman - Woodchoppers Bal (The Golden Big-Bands) <- great for a latin "Jitterbug Stroll"
Coleman Hawkins - Begin the Beguine (The Genious of Coleman Hawkins)

If you have any other salsa songs that are connected to swing, post them here :)
