Bobby Mcferrin, Nat King Cole, Lous Armstrong, Tony Bennett, Billy Eckstine, Ray Charles, Lou Rawls, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone, Shirley Horn, Etta Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Anita O'Day, ...

That should keep you occupied for a while.

what the hell in the jazz forum also those belgians i should have known:P

Well when i'm at here, i state a few diverse jazz player with there own unique style cause i don't know if you like cooljazz or contemporary or whatever:

Miles Davis
Pat Metheny
John scofield

and the Belgian!: Django rheinhardt, although it's gypsy jazz it's a bit different, in my opinion a very appealing style for me but maybe you like it it's a bit darker then normal jazz.
