Hey guys,

I'm trying to find out about a type of jazz I heard recently, which I used to hear a lot of as a kid. Its quite a mellow sort of jazz, and usually when I hear it there is a female singing the vocals for it.
I can't really say much more other than that. But I would appreciate it if you can give me any sort of bands/singers who play this sort of music, or maybe tell me a bit more about the genre.

Cheers guys
