I play both electric and upright bass. The upright is great for jazz. It is also difficult to learn. For what you are describing, I think I'd get an acoustic bass. There are a few out there that are pretty nice.
The upright is a big commitment, not that I'm slamming you or anything, but it just sounds to me like for what you want, you'd be fine spending a few hundred for an acoustic/electric that would play the same as youy are used to with an electric.
There's my two cents.
