My favorite are Wes Montgomery and George Benson. Scofield is good. But if your looking for just jazz artists check out charlie parker, miles davis, thelonious monk (incredible piano player), cannonball adderly, charles mingus, definately john coltrane, i like lionel hampton but thats because i play xylophone. there are much more too

Why bump this month-old pointless thread, when there is a sticky right at the top of this forum?

Why does it say Al Demiola? It's di Meola.
