    I didn't know other instrumentalists played Jazz!!:-)

    Kidding of course, I love Pete Fountain - excellent dixieland jazz clarinet player. Uses very tasteful licks. Played a lot with Al Hirt - who's no slouch either.

    As far as vocalists... when learning a new tune I always take a listen to how Ella Fitzgerald sings it (shes pretty much sang and recorded all the standards). I get good ideas...love how she does Misty.

    Chet Baker and Roy Eldridge still high on the list for me. And if you a can find some early Harry James before he sold out to the schmaltzy crowd you'd be surprised how talented he really was.:-)
