These are all well recorded: Robbie Williams "Swing when you're winning" - stellar recording. ToP Oakland Zone, Strokeland Superband - anything. Santa Fe Fat City Horns (a bit schmultzy for my taste), Phat Phuncktion (great modern stuff - good bass player). Zuchero Fornaciari - The Blues (awesome stuff from the land of great food). For zany - try Dirty Dozen Brass Band (less polished but awesome for simple raw realism and dynamics and less studio engineering polish).
Wayne Bergeron (Tpt) has released 2 stellar CD's: "Plays Well With Others" & "You Call This A Living?". The dude's been around forever, used to be Maynard Ferguson's lead trpt player (which speaks volumes if your familiar with Maynard). A real studio playa on the west coast, he's played with everybody and anybody (pretty sure he's in Goodwin's Phat band). Treat yourself and do what I did, buy both his records at once, it's like getting a spectacular Big Band double album!!;)
