every time i go to the record store i take a look at the jazz department.
but i never know what to take because i hear jazz on the radio. but i never know what the artist is . so can anyone recommend me some artist or groups with jazz that isn't instrumental.

Stuff with Al Jarreau is always good. He's won a few grammys and is pretty popular. He did a lot of work with Chick Correa. That's moving into more free jazzy, fusion stuff (1970s+) but I like it.

Jazz is a music genre that originated at the beginning of the 20th century in African American communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions.

Al Jarreau is hilarious. Particularly his cover of "Spain".

Also, +1 on Benson.
