21Benny Goodman

Benny Goodman is obviously the best. His jazz band was the first jazz band to ever play at carnegie hall.

22Dizzy Gillespie
23Charlie Christian
24The Modern Jazz Quartet
25Wes Montgomery

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

26George Benson

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
