    Just heard a song tonight called "South Philly Groove" by the Charles Earland Tribute Band. Check out song samples on Amazon.

    I'm not sure if "song" necessarily means vocal, but MANHATTAN TRANSFER did lots of uptempo materiel that qualifies

    The ultimate classic fast jazz tune is Salt Peanuts.

    Heck, any of Parker's classic material- Koko, Ornithology, Scrapple from the Apple, etc.

    Pretty much anything that isn't a ballad would answer your question.
