What are your favorite jazz guitarists? Favorite jazz singers?
As far as guitarists, I like really like Wes Montgomery’s music, but I’ve only listened to a handful of Jazz guitarists as of now. I’m not sure if you’d consider Sinatra a Jazz singer, but when he sings a Jazz song, I usually prefer his rendition. Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holliday are my favorite female vocalists.
