Piano, I love Monk, Brubeck, Tyner, and think the late Jackie Byard was very under rated.

Tenor, Charlie Rouse, Coltrane, Lester Young, Stan Getz among others.

Alto, Phil Woods is my favorite and I enjoy a number of others

Trumpet, Clark Terry, Lee Morgan, and the stuff Miles Davis did with the Gil Evans orchestra in the '50s still blows me away.

Bass, Mingus is of course interesting, George Mraz is the best I've ever seen live

That's just a very small sampling, it'd take pages to name all I've heard and enjoyed

Pretty good group of folks there Burdell. I'm a fan of jazz guitar. How about some of these folks; Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, Luis Bonfa', Pat Metheny, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, Gabor Szabo, George Van Eps, Eric Gale, Joe Beck, Tal Farlowe, Johnny Smith, and Les Paul- 90 something and still going strong. Speaking of Eric Gale; some of my music friends get him confused with Eric Gales, a blues guitarist. Eric Gale was a session guitarist for a long time, notably with Creed Taylor's label CTI Records. His LP, Forecast, from 1973 is a GREAT lp! He passed in the mid 90's I believe.

Check out Charlie Christian -- played with some of Benny Goodman's small combos. Alas, he died way too young.

Hey there BlackJ! I love jazz, and also am a decent jazz saxophone player (or was). I haven't picked up my horn in almost 8 years but I'm having my parents ship it all the way up to Alaska next week. I started playing sax my junior year in high school and by my senior year, I was playing with the highly acclaimed St. Olaf College jazz bands, doing improv and songs like C-Jam Blues, etc. I am eager to pick it up again.

During that time, I fell in love with Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, Dizzy Gillespie, big band stuff, and Stan Getz, as well as others. I like more harmonic jazz. I have never been able to get into Coltrane or some of the other cool, "all over the place" artists. I like it swingy, hot, and melodic.
