How to find songs similar to this one?

I am about to produce a song very similar to this one. The songwriter wants me to go in this style with the arrangement. It would be great if I have to listen to more songs of this kind in order to inspire my self to get going and still not copy the arrangement that the song (from the link) has.

Can you recommend me some pop jazz songs similar to this in around 150 bpm?

I would be very grateful if you can link me some.

Here's the link:

I could recommend listening to some Al Jarreau and Ginno Vanelli, look on Youtube.

The arrangement itself consists of Bass and Drums in a samba rhythm, light drums with bundle rods/dowel rods, or heavy brushes instead of sticks. Jazz guitar (very round traditional tone-no distortion) playing his solo sections in a double octave style simular to Wess Montgomery. Chord changes mainly in 4ths and 5ths up and down a harmonic minor scale in minor and major seventh chords. A nice smooth string sound playing mainly chords with passing tone steps in between as a sort of counterpoint to the vocalists melody. Very smooth tone all around on all instruments. Nice recording!
