Over on the TubaEuph list the subject of a musical style from some
rural Black churches in the deep south called "Shout Band" came up -
the form is sort of traditional jazz, call and response, riffs, and
trombone driven gospel. Not exactly OKOM, but close enough for me!
There is a compilation CD of some of the bands here:

samples can be heard there.

and a video from a current band:

Very interesting, joyous music!
