Can anyone recommend some examples of great 2 feel playing over Rhythm Changes?
You might check out some of the gypsy swing guitarists for that. The bassist is often playing mostly a two feel against a four-on-the-floor rhythm guitarist, the combination of which can be wildly propulsive. Aside from Django himself, you can check out modern masters of the genre like Bireli Lagrene, The Rosenberg Trio, and Romane.
Butch Warren plays 2-feel on "Second Balcony Jump" from Dexter Gordon's Go - I like what he plays because it's simple and it fits. I think P.C. might play 2-feel on "The Theme" on The New Miles Davis Quintet, but I might be making that up. I'm sure Milt Hinton has some 2-feel slap stuff on rhythm changes, but I can't name specific records. I feel like 95% of the 2-feel playing on rhythm changes is just 1-6-2-5 / 3-6-2-5 and walking quarter notes on the bridge.
