    Joe and Ella. I always come back to their old tunes.
    What do you like ?

    There are so few jazz vocalists I can tolerate, not sure why. Maybe it's "vocalism" that bugs me. "Straight singers that do the song I tend to like. Ella was one of those, even when she was scatting- the song as written was always respected. Here's my former next door neighbor and my wife's former clarinet teacher:

    There are a few modern groups like the Avalon Jazz Band
    which try to give it all an old swing feeling. I like it.

    I loved Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong together, often w/ the Oscar Peterson trio (Herb Ellis on guitar).

    I like Billie, whatever the tune. For standards, I love Linda Ronstadt. I listen to Louis and Ella a lot, both separately and together. Jack Teagarden was an under-rated jazz singer, but IMO one of the best.

    I like Shirley Horn, just gets to me emotionally for some reason. She was a favourite of Miles Davis.

    kind of an odd pairing at the time...impulse record label bob thiele impulsive idea driven..to make trane more radio friendly...soften...yet nevertheless inspired...the two, not always 100% in simpatico...but their individual mastery shines thru, and transcends...what's now considered a classic album!!

    two greats-

    john coltrane & johnny hartman

    track-my one and only love

    That is my idea of a perfect recording. Love Hartman's voice. And Coltrane's "voice" provides a great contrast. It all works so well together. A desert-island choice for me.

    talk about carrying a lyric!!!...chet, despite his obvious vocal limitations, delivers the true essence of the tune...lyrically & melodically...and he did it consistently...& on trumpet and flugel too!!...one of the greatest!

    check this- from chet baker sings- i get along without you very well... killer phrasing!!!..

    and obscure, but mighty, pianist russ freeman...perfect on opening celeste and then piano

    Recently been listening to loads of Mildred Bailey. Very pure and unfussy voice, relatively unshowy.



    She liked some quite adventurous discordant big-band arrangements at times. Here she's using more vibrato than normal, but it's great...

    Scott Robinson is talented to be sure, but not so young. Joan Chamorro keeps coming up with talented young musicians, though, and mostly female.
