Well, I'm into ska so I decided to check out some jazz because I love that horn section. Needless to say, jazz fucking pwns so recommend me some jazz artists besides/similar to Duke Ellington.

Without a doubt pick up the album 'Mack the Knife' by Louis Armstrong. The Glen Miller Orchestra is pretty good too (albeit more of a swing sound). The Squirrel Nut Zippers if you want contemporary swing.

All I can say is Miles Davis.

Mingus has some good stuff. And maybe Thad Jones.
