West Side Story
West Side Story - (another recording from a fine wind ensemble)

I'll leave these pieces here, so that you can peruse them at your leisure

Sleigh Ride

Other pieces to listen to are: MALAGUENA by Ernesto Lecuaona. This piece is originally scored for piano. Although you can "Google" your own band arrangement of this, I think it would be good for you to listen to these recordings by four different players:
This first person is a very excellent piano player.  Notice her interpretations of the music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4Ii-RZDj2c
Then we have this gentleman who just brings out each and every note: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuQQxZ7TXaY
And, then we have this musician who gets into her music very dramatically: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgfgTnCE__8
And, then, yet, we have a exceptional guitarist performing the same piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVNss1T3NoY 
Then, check out this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJET9cVvzeM  (he definitely puts his own touch into the music)


Fucik's March, Florentiner, By the United States President's Own Marine Band:
Fucik's March, Florentiner by MNOZIL Brass - This thing is HILARIOUS (You gotta' listen to this):  

The Phantom of the Opera:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw1tGyPdsso

I will also add a different arrangement of an orchestral recording for you (just to listen to, not to practice to):
