One of my co-workers has a bassy hum that drives me nuts.  I need to have some of my own music to drown it out.  I'd rather not advertise Touhou and invite people to come up and ask me "Hey, what's that you're listening to?" because that usually leads to "So while I'm here, something weird is going on with my *insert technology product here*" and I don't need any more of that at work.

So does anyone have recommendations for albums I should get?  I'm not interested in jumping through 9001 steps to convert TTA, but I do have a torrent going of something like 100ish albums. 

I already have Touhou Komori Uta and Zoku Touhou Komori Uta, but I want more with real instruments and not just synth or computer arrangements.

For Jazz you should listen to C-Clay's arrangements, their jazz arrangement of Cirno theme, Marisa theme and Youmu's stage are awesome. Very peaceful and pretty supreme vocal.

dialogue~Paradigm Lost~ by kimino-museum, it's all instrumental rock/jazz.  I just got it at Otakon, pretty dang good ('though fairly short).  It's part of a 2disk set with ~Reincarnation~, which is a vocal disk with some of the same songs.

Swing Holic a thousand times. They have 4 albums out and while only about half are instrumental, they're still awesome.

Seconding this. It goes into Weather Channel territory, and that's awesome.

I'm upping the ante: if anyone knows a workable jazzy Touhou song with actual instruments, and I like it, IT WILL BE PLAYED DURING THE RECEPTION WHEN TRIANGLES AND I GET MARRIED.

I am serious.

How about this one?

Alternatively, try the Touhou Jazz albums by AZURE&SANDS.

The one Touhou Jazz album I got sometime last year sounded like synth... I need actual instruments.  D:

Youtube is blocked on PCs - can you tell me what to search for on the first one so I can view it on my Pre later?

If you want rock, there's also demetori.

Iryan - that one off Youtube is perfect! 

We're trying to slip in some video game music that isn't instantly recognizable for the reception - which is why anything too "synth-y" is right out.

I think Alice theme from SWR qualifies.

Are you fine with calmer arranges as well, or more swingish, upbeat ones like what I posted?
(Or maybe stuff with less instruments.)

Also I love love love this one, but I'm not sure it's what you want as it seems kind of synth-ish.

Like I said, Swing Holic. Pretty sure those are performed with real instruments.

The entirety of IOSYS's "bloom" is instrumental jazz using real instruments, fwiw.

You sure about that? The wiki says there's a lot of synth in it.

Giving another listen, the copy I own has a lot of piano, upright bass, live drums, flute, clarinet and some synth; so little as to be forgettable.

SWING HOLIC
LUNATIC EYES

I gotta track down more of their music, I think they only had one album in the 116-album torrent from C76. 

But I am SO pushing to play this song at the wedding; it's not only an awesome Touhou cover but a jazzy hip song in its own right.
