Best Male Jazz Singers of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Bing Crosby Bing Crosby Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby, Jr. was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark warm bass-baritone voice made him the best-selling recording artist of the 20th century, having sold over one billion records, tapes, compact discs and digital downloads around the world.

Oh Britgirl...wonderful you! Well, all the men you chose are enchanting singers, you already know that. They were all so gifted and they really seemed to enjoy and love what they sang. I'm not very moved by Harry Connick Jr, though. It's not because he is the youngest one, I'm just not enraptured by his singing. Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong are my favourite ones from your 'yummy' list. I voted Bing Crosby because I wanted my comment to appear next to yours. It's more cozy for this warm-hearted list.

2 Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong, nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer and singer who was one of the most influential figures in jazz.

Feels Like Home

No one has the color of jazz in the voice and on the instrument, like Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. It's unmistakable.

Juan Carlos Castillo

3 Nat King Cole Nat King Cole Nathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist.
