Music like "I Want to be Like You" from The Jungle Book

So, I was watching The Jungle Book the other night and I really dug the sound of the song that King Louis sings called "I Want to be Like You."

Anyone have suggestions for what artists to check out that might have a similar sound? It seems a bit jazzy?

    Well, King Louie was voiced by Louis Prima so his music might be a good place to start.

    Louis Prima and his (ex-)wife Keely Smith have a lot of classic big band/jazz standards. Their most famous is That Old Black Magic:

    He also does a classic rendition of Just a Gigolo:

    I actually like Keely Smith far more than I like Louis Prima, but they have some of the best Vegas big band songs ever. Just look up Louis Prima on YouTube for an extensive collection of his music.

    EDIT: Other artists similar to Louis Prima include Cab Calloway, Dean Martin, and Louis Jordan.
