For instrumental Gypsy jazz, investigate Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli–& their followers.
They formed the Quintette du Hot Club de France in the 30’s & their music has influenced many. Django died in the 50’s but Stephane kept playing to the end of his very long life. Did some fine work with David Grisman.
These are wonderful, especially Django
this contemporary Gypsy jazz/swing/ latin group might surprise you
