For Big Band, I'd recommend Basie and Ellington. For jazz I think old school is best, and I like the horns: Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Stan Getz are my favorites. If you want a jazz vocalist, I think the women did it best: Try Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughn.
It might help if I/we have a sense of what you like now in those genres.
I've only very recently started "expanding my horizons" when it comes to music. I really, really love Philip Glass as well as Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr., Enya and Celtic Woman. I also kind of like what little I've heard of Makossa inspired music.
If it helps any, my long time favorites are Pink Floyd, Post-Beatles John Lennon and Bob Dylan.
If anyone wants to point out some good dance music ala Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga I'm open.
I don't think I have ever seen Axle or you in the same thread. Or you might be related.
