Best Jazz Artists
The Contenders: Page 2
Brilliant and very talented trumpeter/singer who lived through his music. His music could completely wrench your heart but sound so sweet and heavenly all at the same time.
He helped introduce jazz to popular music.
Easily the greatest Jazz guitarist who ever lived. And when you think that he just played with his thumb for picking and three fingers for fretting... damn. Spectacular
I'm thinking George Benson should be a lot higher then 17 not only does he hum the solo but plays it. Very gifted note for not guitarist (Plus he plays clean undistorted for the most part lead AND RYTHEM Guitar simultaneously. Goerge for #1
come on guys. George is a great fusion of jazz and soul. Just take a listen to Give Me The Night. he is the king. - fireinside96
31? Really wow you have to be kidding me. I expected him to be in at least the top 5 - Sabbath
One of the best jazz pianist
Momentum is his momentum on Jazz
Best Female singer in my opinion... I love her song called, Cry me a river it is soft and relaxing and is full of great emotion with her voice and the lyrics in the song... The song will give you strong emotional feel I guarantee it.
His style of piano playing is unique. Each person in his quartet is so talented. He has the best jazz quartet I have ever heard in my life.
Perhaps my favorite jazz pianist
His works... Life itself... I can't describe. Just listen, dream and enjoy the harmony of music... - Yunis
Are you guys kidding me? Billie Holiday is one of the jazz greats! Everything about her is amazing... Her signature style of singing half a beat behind but never off tune and the obvious pain and experience in her voice as she sings. Honestly... When she sings it lets you know that no one will ever sing like that again... The era of great jazz singers is over...
