Happy upbeat jazz instrumentals?

Hello! I'm kind of new to jazz music but I'm really starting to like it. I'm not a huge fan of smooth slow jazz but I really like a lot of the other styles and also jazz beats. I'm not very picky on the time period or anything. I was wondering about some catchy happy upbeat jazz instrumentals that I could listen to? I really like the songs "Soulful Strut" and "Spain". I also like "Valbonne Song" which isn't really a classic but is good none the less.

I also like a lot of the music that the youtuber, Louis Cole aka Fun for Louis uses in his vlogs.
